    Today I'm in the Honda. 35.1 miles , 52 MPG.
    I haven't looked at the tank average since Saturday , but it's probably around 50 mpg.

    Had a nice trip home in the Prius yesterday.
    31.6 miles , fcd = 81.2 x .943 = 76.6 MPG.

    Up early and spent a couple hours on the tractor. 34 hp Kubota, and when it's working hard it burns about 1 gallon per hour of diesel.

    Yeah, I'm impressed. That's like 50mpg @ 50 mph, but it's digging dirt or dragging logs or today it's mowing weeds in a 6ft path.

    jcp123 Caliente!

    I kinda wish I’d kept track of my Pa’s New Holland when we had land. It had around the same power and seemed to go forever on its diesel. I kinda miss having an excuse to have a tractor nowadays.
