Bad fuel economy on lawn mower

Hello guys,

My Z254 zero turn mower has been showing decreasing fuel economy for the last few weeks, despite me changing the fuel and replacing it with fresh gasoline. What could be causing it and how can I improve my fuel economy?



Hello Mark,

Firstly, ensure that you only use high grade petroleum to fuel your mower, ensure that you check the engine manufacturer’s manual to understand the appropriate octane fuel for your machine. It could also be possible that your air fuel ratio is too high, I would suggest inspecting this as well.
