    I just purchased a 2001 exmark Metro HP 48" and do not know which is the best grade of fuel for this mower. In general, is it best to use 93, 89 or 87 octane fuel for commercial mowers?

    Troy,

    The 87 octane is just fine. You can run the 89 if you like but I would not recommend the 93, high octane or premium fuels. Many of these engines run much better on 87 or 89 than they do on the expensive stuff.............................I guess it's all expensive now but I wouldn't spend the money for the really expensive stuff.

    Thanks,

    Terry
