    I would guess a little over a gal. for the chopper w/ the 27 hp. and on the Toro I would say about .85 of a gal per hour.That would be my guesstimate.

    Dixie will burn approx. 1.2 gal/hr depending on cutting conditions i.e. how much load is being but onto the motor. Are you cutting thick, wet grass or stringy thing stuff? Not sure about the toro.
