GPH on your Z-Turns

I am interested in what everybody is getting for a gallons per hour on their z-turn(s). Please specify which model you have as well as engine.

Same here on the 27HP Kawa air cooled in a John Deere Z830A, but it will use a little more if I'm in really heavy stuff, and a little less if you're doing some light cutting. I also have a BobCat FastCat Pro with 20HP Kawa and it uses around 1 GPH.

What nobody ever thinks about is what blades you run. I usually run medium lifts and was getting about 1.3gph on a 26 lq kaw 52in Scag. I ran sand blades on the same area a different week and was less than .9gph for the mower. This HOA takes 8 hrs. to mow only and with the med lifts I have to refill, and with the low lifts I had about a gallon lift in the tank.
