    I did ask the dealer and he did not know the answer to this.

    Ask the dealer who does warranty work on engines? When cub cadet had Cats on tractors cat was to do the warranty work. Make sure you have a cat dealer close buy if this is the case!

    I have heard that small diesels engines in general get about 30% better fuel economy than comparable gas engines. Only a few (nosparkplugs has one, I believe) people on this site have a cat diesel, though.

    I would say 1/2 to 3/4 of a gallon per hour.
