    I have a 24 honda/52 inch deck Super Mini that has used over 3/4 of a quart of oil in 20.2 hours? I have the same motor on a Super Z 60 inch and it has not used a drop (49 hours) what is going on?:cry:

    Not sure.
    Get it into your dealer can let them look at it, there has to be a reason.
    Is it brand new? it could be the break in.

    It was the drain tube!!!! The dealer did not get it tight after the 8 hour oil change, thank goodness for the new trailer deck or I would have never seen it! It has only used 1/4 of a dipstick in 18 hours, (break-in I am sure):usflag:
