    Gator ride

    Wife,daughter and grandaughter left for a gator ride this evening. I decided to stay at home, since grandaughter and I had gone on a 2 hr ride this afternoon.
    Kept wondering where they were it was 8:15 and grandaughter needs home to get ready for school tomorrow. Found out about a min later got a phone call from daughter ,,,RAN OUT OF GAS ,,about 3miles from home. So I took gas to them ,wife and I brought gator home ,daughter and grandaughter brought our car.
    I'm guessing next time they will check the amount of gas in tank or maybe not.. wishful thinking !!!!

    I am not sure what gator you have, but my old 850D XUV was easy to overlook the fuel guage. I cannot tell you how many times I happened to look down after out int he field and see the needle resting on E. Many times I would misread the guage thinking empty was full. I can see how easily that can happen.

    I am hoping the new diesel model has the same dash as the gas model as I believe it has the fuel guage right in front of you.

    On edit: I researched and JD does not have the digital dash on the 855 because it does not have an ecu like the 825i to feed it information. I will still be happier cruising around knowing the engine is not turning 5,000 rpm's all the time.

    Well the wife bought the xuv550 S4 4 seater Mid Duty.. The only way to tell how much fuel is to look back and under the rear seat. There is a 1" or 1 1/2" wide slot in panel to show the side of the fuel tank.
    Thankfully I stated home or we would've been calling the FIL to bring us some gas or I would have been walking down to the house guessing it would have taken 45-60 min to walk home . At first I was thinking 3 miles it was closer to 5 .
    Saying about the fuel gauge on gator sounds like the one on the 1026r being down on fender instead of on the dash. I won't say I hate the gauge on fender but I'm not totally happy either. I've misread mine on the 1026r , It's good when your filling the tank you can see tell how much fuel is in the tnk.
    I did do the 50 hr maint tonight befor they left for ride and I did fill it up. 3 grease fittings checked front and rear diff . I did find the front diff low by 2 oz. guessing it must have been low or close to being low when it was delivered.

    Glad you got them back safe and sound.

    Were your filters on tight? How 'bout the hex bolt on the trans filter screen?

    oil filter when I changed it wasn't tight and trans diff nut wasn't all that bad. Pretty easy service for this one. Hardest part was adding fluid in front diff. Then I remembered I had a suction type plunger with 1/4" hose . When I change frnt fluid at 100hrs I might take the front wheel off just to make it easier to see what is going on.
