    How many acres can you mow on a full tank of gas (and how big is your gas tank)?

    Hard to say but I can tell you i can mow 8 hrs non stop
    15 gallons of gass So at 7.5 hrs I head to truck to load up get more gas
    Acres I would say 5 acres per 1.5 gal of gas
    I ran GPS one time see how far I travel in a hour 10 miles So isn t very good mpg

    I get 1.4 gal per hour with 14 gals of gas, gives me 10 hours of use. I'm slow, so I'll say about 10 acres per fill up. I'm getting faster this year so I might could mow 15 acres per fill up.

    That's my story. :drinkup:
