    What are your fuel costs per operating hour for an 18 horse Kohler on a Exmark turf tracer 52 in walk behind. Or how much does it use per running hour.

    I should of kept better track, but I have blended all fuel cost into lump sums. (I did a Search using these terms “fuel costs per hour” wasn’t much help)

    Thanks for any help.
