    This is why my tractor is always clean.

    I have to constantly clean up after myself.

    The spout on my 20 yo diesel fuel can broke. So I used a funnel. The awkward angle I have to stand trying to hold a full 5 gallon jug along with a funnel equals a bath for the tractor. I've been too cheap to come up with a better solution like you guys have shown in previous threads.

    I stand up on the right hand side floor board to fuel up. it is awkward at best. Other than the toolbox, I miss the easy fueling of the 1026r most.

    I hate the 5 gallon jugs as well but haven't taken action on another solution. I get drips and splashes but that gives the dirt something to do, by soaking it up.

    Top of the fuel tank on the 1050 stays pretty clean. If you wipe the diesel off instead of allowing to air dry, it removes the oxidation of the paint, thereby saving hours of rubbing and buffing!

    You think my wife would go for that if I use it to "wax" here Expedition next time? Sure sounds easier than the buffing stuff.
