    I just have a basic question. I would like to know whether the next ZTR mower I get should be a diesel or stick with the gas again? Overall is it worth the extra money??

    I would go with a diesel. Around here diesel is a little cheaper than gas and the diesel will burn less fuel and last longer and have more power so I say yeah, get a diesel.

    Definately depends on your mowing conditions, power requirements, and the hours you rack up on the machine. I am not sure how much more the diesel is than the gas, if only a few hundred then definately go with diesel.

    More torque, better fuel economy, longer engine life, less maintenance... diesel is the only way to go.
