    Did you pay to get an account with them? I have a business account with amsoil and get everything at reduced cost. It is $6.40 a quart for the 4 stroke 10W-30 with my account.

    Yes I paid $20 for a 1 year preferred membership. I bought a case for $72 and some change! Which is only $1 more per quart than I buy mobil 1 for on sale. Im pretty psyched about trying Amsoil. I also bought a case of Saber Professional.

    I've been using the Saber for over two years now and it's worked great. I'm mixing it at about 75 to 1 instead of the 100 to 1 but that's just me.

    Looking good! I haven't checked my tire pressure yet. I bet it is way to high. I will do that before I head out in the morning. As for the greasing thing. I wish gravely did use grease fittings in 4 areas. I would like grease fittings in the spindles, front castors, front wheel bearings and the deck idler pulley and idler arm. That's coming from somebody that has owned a bunch of gravely mowers.

    GMLC. Have you estimated your fuel usage per hour yet? Just curious. Heard the fx series kawasaki are not the best on gas.

    My machine just turned 4 hours even and I used 7 gallons (one full tank) so that's about 1.75 gallons per hour with my FX921V. I hope after the engine gets broken in good it will go down to around 1.5 but that might be wishful thinking.
