I'm not saying that you are wrong or don't know what you were really getting/using per hour, but I think many people think they are doing worse than they really are that run the 2011 and earlier 950's simply because they are labeled 31 instead of the true rating of 27 that is on 2012 and newer models. The engines have always had 27 hp, so for yours to do so much worse is odd. I know several guys with 950's and they all do about the same as me when actually checked over several fill ups.
The 930's use the same exact engine as the 950's. The ONLY difference is that the throttle plate opens farther in the 950 version to allow more fuel into the engine for more HP. The difference in actual fuel use between the two is minimal.
