I was speaking of the "400" seires tractors. they are odd balls and need "400" attachments for them.Mopar, I'm not sure where the "400" came in?
I would have to drive 45 mins to get ethanol free gas and it's around $5 a gal.I don't think I've ever run across any bio diesel around here. None of the local stations sell it.
The tank on the 430 is under the fender pan, I had it out for the original owner about 5 years ago when the grommets around the fuel lines started leaking. It got all new grommets at that time. The guy kept a second 150 gallon fuel tank in his garage for fuel, basically a half size heating oil tank. He'd keep it full when he got heating oil for the house and garage. I think his garage heater draws off it as well.
He also had a diesel generator, and a Chinese diesel on a rototiller as well.
He gave me a couple of small Lombardini 6hp diesel engines a few years ago that' I've been trying to find a purpose for as well.
With gas as high as diesel these days, I'd just as well go diesel and not worry about gas at all. I only wish my car was diesel too.
I went out this morning to cut my grass and had to pull the fuel bowl off my push mower, what ever was in the bowl wouldn't burn. What was in the tank ran fine. It happens almost every week. If I drain the fuel out of the tank into a jar, let it sit about a week I get a clear layer of what looks like water on the bottom of the jar. We don't have ethanol free fuel unless I buy race fuel and that's loaded with lead and over $12/gal. I can drive about two hours out of state and buy non ethanol gas for about $5.49 per gallon.
The bottom line is that diesel is the right answer vs hunting down and paying extra for non ethanol gas.
Man I could use one of those 6hp diesels for my wood splitter. :tango_face_grin:
I have a diesel Mercedes 300TD wagon average is 22mpg. 5cyl and gets 27 on the highway
I have a 93 Dodge Cummins and my wife has a 2000 5 speed Cummins.
Yesterday I fill our Durango and thought to myself "when did gas get to $3 agal. It cost me as much to fill the Durango as it does my truck." :tango_face_crying:
Anyway I love the look of the 400 tractors they just look like beasts. but I have invested too much money in my 300 attachments to move to a 400.
