Need to verify some information for operating cost tool

I'm working on a program that will help find your operating cost/hr, and what a property will cost you to maintain each week.
There are a huge amount of variables I will have to create, so I want to standardize a few to make it easier to use.

What I have found as a weighted average + a bit for error is that the average mower uses 1.35 gallons of gas per hour.
An average handheld uses .5 gallons per hour.

I will also be assuming a user buys mobil-1 oil as their lubricant and Opti-2 for their 2 cycle equipment.

Some feedback on these assumptions would help quite a bit.
