I use a 445 Deere with a blower and had 55 gal the start of the winter and only have 5 gal left and I have not had the snow that some of you people have had.

A few calories cleaning the walk in front of the house is about it!

I use ht20 with blade and 1886 with blower to move snow. My best guess is 60+ gallons so far and we have gotten 111"+ snow as of this point. The cost is a lot less than the 500$ it cost for plowing last year. The seat time is great but getting old. I clear much more than just the driveway. I do around the house, a large area for the dog and my neighbors drive

At my house about a gallon of gas maybe.  At work probably around 2500 gallons of diesel.

Think I had to refill my 5 gal gas tank only once, but now that is gone today. This if for two tractors also. One in front, one in back. Blades here, no blowers. Not a lot of snow this year, just about right. Today was 6"er or so.

Well just today I burned up a plate full of scrambled eggs and some toast this morning.    Really most of the time I just shovel it.   I did run about 1 tank full through the blower  Maybe a gallon at most for the year.

Probably a half gallon of gas for the 4 wheeler. Done it twice. My wife just drives through it. She knows how to operate the plow but she says it's not worth the time.
