    Question about a new D130

    I'm new to this forum and will be new to a (2014) D130 in about 2 weeks. (it's on order) http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...es/1/yahoo.gif The spec. sheet say's the gas tank holds 2.4 gallons. but the Canada/Mexico version holds 4 + gallons, how can I get one of these tanks? The tractor has a B & S 22 hp. twin with a Hydro. trans. About how long will it mow on less than 2 1/2 gal.? Is it worth trying to get the larger tank? If I put a new fuel tank in it, would JD void my warranty? (bought from a JD dealership)

    Welcome to GTT Grasscutter.

    When I had my L130 (previous generation) I'd get about 1 gallon/hour in the fuel economy department.

    As for the larger tank; that's news to me. I suggest you create a free account at www.jdparts.com The parts website is the same one your dealer uses, has plenty of diagrams, and you'll get parts' cost after adding to your cart. I and many others on this forum use it extensively.

    I found this part number for USA tanks GY21227; but capacity isn't listed. There is another tank; but it's for early production runs, so I didn't list it. I assume they are the 2.1 gallon tanks.

    As for voiding your warranty; I have no idea if it will or not if can get a bigger tank. I don't see why it would; but what do I know.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Can you link to one of these spec sheets? Everything I can find shows the U.S. and Canadian models both using the exact same gas tank - JD Part # GY21227

    Imperial gallons? Imperial gallons are less than a US gallon, but not 1/2 as much.

    I have the same 2.4 gal tank on my D160 (all of the D1xx units have the same tank) and I mow 2 acres every week with gas left over in the tank. (Usually about 1/4 tank) I've only ever run out of gas once and that was when I was using the bagger to suck up leaves and mow at the same time.

    That must be it! I saw it on the back of the D100 series pamphlet that the salesman gave me. A new question: the D130 has the same little plastic oil drain cap as the other 100's , Are they ok, or do they loosen or leak in time? Thanks

    Hmmm... I think you have that backwards.

    1 U.S. Gallon = 3.785 litres = 8.34 lbs.
    1 Imperial gallon = 4.54609 litres = 10 lbs

    2.4 U.S. gal = 1.9984 Imp. Gal.

    My L130 was a pain in the butt; but the plastic oil drain cap on the Kohler engine didn't cause any trouble for me.

    A typo on Mama Deere's part?
