I can't think of any other 500+ cubic inch engines that will burn only nine gallons of fuel after running at rated rpm for seven hours! Heck, even my little 100 cubic inch M isn't that easy on fuel.

john deere test showed the 501ci 8.2L D at full load used 3.9 gallons of kero an hr.. 880rpm/ no load 965rpm which is what i was doing showed 1.5 gallons an hr on kero. i dont know excactly how much was in the tank when i started but it wasnt full but close and after trip i put in 12.9 gallons of gasoline to the brim so i estimated 9 gallons used for 7hrs give or take which is about 1.3 gallons and hr on gasoline. so close to their figures. but who knows for sure:dunno::greentractorride:

I've plowed with an earlier D on steel at our club show years ago and it was running on 80% Diesel/20% Regular gas with a bit of water being injected too. It ran great in heavy ground but would blow a bit of smoke when not under load. I forget what the fuel consumption was, there is a video of it on my YouTube channel BrentEdmonson. Deere's were always famous for burning very little amounts of low cost fuel like Stove Top, Kerosene, and Distilate.
