    2 push mowers, 1 riding mower, 2 weed trimmers -

    20 to 25 gallons.

    Granted - my son and I cut our lawn, plus my Mom's lawn, and several times through cutting season, we cut 3-5 acres at the farm we have permission to use for shooting/hunting/fishing.

    (That doesn't include diesel for the tractor/bushhog. About 20 gallons.
    Total cutting on the farm is about 40 acres. Others buy diesel for the tractor, too.)

    I have about 3/4 of an acre to mow.Last year I bet I didn't use 5 gallons.
    I use probably two or three gallons of (2-cycle)trimmer gas.
    However my 5 year old mower crapped out on the last mowing session of last year.I ended up with two used Lawn Boy push mowers this year that run on 2 cycle gas.I've noticed they use less gas overall.I like that now I don't have to worry about getting the gas confused and my 2 cycle gas doesn't have a chance to get old before I can use it.

    I am just about to use up my fresh 5-gallons on the next mow. I have a riding mower and a Honda walk-behind. I think I probably use between 10-15/summer plus the 2-3 gallons of 2-cycle for my Echo trimmer and 2 Stihl and Echo chainsaws. I probably won't use as much 2-cycle as I am still pretty stocked in firewood from a mild winter last year.

    I'm using about 4gal a cut. I should cut more, but I'm slack. I guess I'm cutting about every 18 days or so.

    It adds up...

    I filled up two 5gal jugs the other day at the "E-free" pump and it was right at $36 for lawnmower gas. That sucks.

    I have 2 push; 1 rider; 2 boats. I don't count the gallons I go through in a summer. I have 4-5 of those 5 gallon containers. I just try to keep them topped off during the slow times.

    I just put my first gallon in my lawnmower. I also have a generator, weed whacker and blower that I use the same gas for (after mixing oil for the 2 cycles of course...)

    6-10 gallons a year between the mower, string trimmer, and leaf blower.

    Five gallons for me as well. I refuse to mow earlier than every five days though. I have some neighbors that mow every two.

    Zero. My mower, trimmer, and leaf blower are all electric. But then, I only have a small city lot. I just couldn't resist skewing the averages. :rofl:

    About 32 gallons of gasoline for the Snapper, Gravely, and DR Mower, then about 60 gallons of diesel for the John Deer 5210.

    Not sure.

    Due to Climate Change it's been very dry and have not had to mow much the last two years.

    I have 6.78 acres at my home, 3.1 acres at another place and 7.5 acres at a third piece of property.

    I have a Massey-Ferguson 2300 22.5hp diesel lawn tractor, a 4.75ho push mower, a 2-stroke weed whacker and an electric weed whacker.

    When I mow my 4.25 acres (all grass), my mower uses about 1.5 gallons a week. So, about 36 gallons from May throught the middle of October.
