How much gas per hour would a john deere 300 with the kohler k341 burn at full throttle pulling tillage equipment?

I plan on pulling a 7 s tine cultivator and a small disk I picked up a while ago...

Miles per Pull???  You bring up some weird stuff at times.   Diesel is cheaper and last longer, Gas, just buy 5 gallons in a can and use as needed, the heck with worrying about how many hours your gonna get.  Working this stuff Uses fuel.  That is not a very big engine and it will work even harder than say a bigger twin or something else.. You ever think about an IH Cub or A or B for the stuff you want to do?  Could pull easier, last longer and bet easier on fuels.

I never figured out the fuel per hour. Just gripes me when the can is empty.

That depends on how far the governor has the throttle open under those conditions. Could be any where from 1/4 to full throttle and varied as the load changes. My guess is 2 litres per hour.

You will just have to run your own test..every engine and situation is different..even the weather affects usage..gonna be hard to pin down..I say Purple when I am left speechless or have no clue BTW :thumbs:

Also depends on how deep your running the cultivators and disk. Soil conditions will also affect the fuel usage.

You most likely will be working it about as hard as if you were mowing. As Noel said above, half gallon- two liters is a close guess.
