    I have the Yanmar 3TNV88 engine on my mower.

    1/ engine oil consumption between services -- usually add no oil.
    2/ service interval -------------------------- 225 to 250 hours
    3/ machine hrs ----------------------------- 950 machine hours

    My previous two Yanmar diesels used a lot more oil.

    My Kubota ZD21 doesnt use any in 100 hours
    The Kubota ZD28 uses about .5 quart in 100 hours.
