    I am curious as to what mowers and engines people are using and how much fuel an hour they are using. I am thinking about another purchase, and fuel consumption is worth considering at today's prices!

    kubota - I run a Quick 36 with a 15HP Kawasaki.
    Would estimate I use about 1/2 - 1/3 gallon per hour (right in between).
