 Fuel Usage

Has anyone monitored your fuel usage? Particularly on the TC35/40/45? I am curious how long a tank of fuel should last. I think it is a 12 gal. tank. I realize it depends on engine speed but just looking for an average. Does 1 gallon per hour sound about right? Is there a published specification on this somewhere?

I have no experience with your specific tractor, but assuming (eek!) that most diesels are about the same, 1 gallon an hour is a common number for hard work (plowing, tilling, mowing); that is about what our MF135 (about 35 hp 4-cyl diesel)uses. It also looks like my TC29 will use about the same when running at PTO rpm.

I agree with the other guys; a gallon an hour for a tractor that size is a good guesstimate. I've done some checking with my B2710 and it will vary from 2/3 to a little less than 3/4 gallon per hour; average about 7/10.

I have a 35hp 4400 mowing with a 72" Landpride Flatdeck I manage 20 hrs on a 10gal tank uncut diesal. Winter its cut 15% or so and get a little less. Mostly loader work skacking snow banks not pto but close and working the engine. Use a Caterpillar at work, now and then, and burn 15+ gals per hour.

the old rule of thumb was maximum flywheel horsepower times .035.that will get you pretty close to gallons per hour.good luck

I've been tracking fuel usage for the last 100 hrs. on my JD855. I've averaged 1.5 hrs/gal! This is combined usage - plowing, mowing, loader, backhoe, etc.

My NH TC35D = A little more than 1 gal/hr. FEL work moving heaps of snow @ about a steday 1800 rpm. Moderately cool weather (10 to 30 degrees) mostly . Straight diesel from local gas station. A bit higher fuel usage than I would have hoped for!
