    We are running walker efi's 48" and i'm trying to do some cost figuring...What do all you guys with walker EFI 48" figure you are burning for gas per hour. Assuming the machine is at full throtle in normal mowing conditions for one full hour.

    I don't have the 26efi, but my Kohler TH-16 on a 42"GHS Walker consumes fuel at 0.75 GPH. I get exactly 4 hours out of a 3gal. tank.

    Yet another stinkin cold front.............. C'mon spring, "Let's Get It On!"

    Around .75 gp hr. 42" GHS
    26 EFI.

    Much better than the 25 I had. That got 1.2 per hour at best. And it was junk.
