    I think my Scag tiger cub uses more gas than my truck. Does anybody fill there Zero more than once a day. I believe mine has two six gallon tanks and seem to use almost daily.

    Well, think about the comparable runtimes there...

    That said, I generally fuel up 2 times a week and put 17 gallons in the cans on the trailer (mainly used in the ZTR) and about the same amount in the truck, every time I fuel up.

    I have never tracked how many hours per gallon my mower gets... Actually that would be intersting. My truck only gets about 5 to 6 mpg. Damn Dodge V-10 with an automatic... Not my smartest purchace for out fuel prices these days! I try my best to keep my route TIGHT and keep travel to a minimum.
