When I start pushing my Hemi guzzles the equivilant to a dozen alcoholics in a free bar per hour.
I use about a 1/2 tank per day, somewhere around 5ish hours average run time, with plowing and idle usage. I usually fill up after 3 days but can stretch to 4.
Most of my trucks burn roughly a half a tank per route.
Pushing snow I usually run it at 2400-2450. Just looked at my receipt from my last tank. 1.62gph. I wish they could squeeze just a little bigger tank into these machines.
i have a 99 250 diesel and i go through about 1.5 per hour plowing. i just bought a 94 gmc 3500 hd 454 and i hope i can get aroung 3gph in it because it has a 25 galon tank in it(small) and when we push it will probably be a 10 or 12 hour run and i dont want to have to fill it up in the middle.
when did they start putting 50 gallon tanks in the x's?
One of our Chevy 4500s has an 8.1 gasser 800 gal deice tank on back 9'2'' plow on front 94 mi plowing lot's = 38 gallon of fuel consumption.
I plowed for 18 hours last storm and used a tank not to bad I thought.
97 F250 with 351W and 4.10 in axle
went though 13 gallons in 7 hours and got 89 miles out tanks. I don't drive like crazy. Just try save gas due boss is out town for 2 weeks I spend $90 dollars in gas this week.
It seem it use more gas than 01 F250 5.4L and 4.10 in axle do.
yeah tank size, truck size, how much its sitting during the storm or storm length vary too much.
some of our trucks filled up 3+ times this last big storm, but we were out for days with that one.
others we can salt all night long with one diesel truck and still have half a tank left.
I can start with about a half a tank, plow for while, put $40 in, take a quick nap, plow some more, have some left in the tank.
How's that math Crete?
I used about 5 gallons per hour in the haybinder yesterday for a 4 inch fluffy storm. These new emissions motors suck so much fuel its unreal.
My pickup burns around one tank of fuel per month, because I don't drive it in the salt and have a beater to run around in
Could someone tell me how increasing fuel usage by half again is better for the environment?
Hang on to your hats. The environmentalists are taking over, and it's going to cost the end user and tax payer a bazillion dollars.
during the last big "blizzard" my 06 F350 Powerstroke went through 1 27 gallon tank in 32hrs, or thereabouts, I have a 8ft mm2 on the front
Fixed it for you.
How much crap do you suppose the current administration has pushed through while we've been distracted by health care, economy stimulus packages, etc....
My duramax running a mild tune and straitpipe pushing a decent sized lot with about 17 inches of light snow went 16 hours to just over a half a tank which equals out to 13 gallons or so
My entire route which currently consists of about 26 residential driveways and 4 parking lots is only 56KM (34.8 miles) round trip right back to my door step. I burn roughly 1/4 tank which costs me about $30 in my Gas powered Ram... It takes me 4 hours to complete the route in an average snow storm of 10-15cm...
i know ive gone through $1400 in fuel this season already in the duramax truck alone. horrible mph when out plowing the gas wells. mpg on the wells is around 6.5. plowing the commercial lots is around 10 mpg. we have had around 70" of snow fall this season so far.
