The fuel capacity of a Toro mower depends on what form of mower you are using. Each has a distinct fuel tank designed to operate with that specific model. When adding gas to a Toro mower, always use fuel as near 87 octane as possible. The gas can consume up to 10 percent ethanol. As fuel becomes older and begins to degrade, you could have more difficulty beginning your Toro mower, or it may not operate in any way.
Gas Walk-Behind Mowers
Many Toro walk-behind electricity generators have a fuel capacity of approximately 1/4 gallon or even a quart. Walk-behind generators require significantly less fuel compared to riding mowers because they’re partially powered by your motion. You can eliminate the fuel tank in walk-behind mowers by removing the cap onto the mower, yanking on the tank and then lifting it away from your system.
Gas Riding Mowers
The Toro TimeCutter series of riding mowers have 3-gallon tanks. The professional Z Pro 2000 series models have 8-gallon tanks. The 5000 series mowers have 12-gallon tanks, as does the 6000 EFI series. The capacity of a Toro gas-powered riding mower depends on the magnitude of the mower and the horsepower. The higher the horsepower in a riding mower, the lower the fuel efficiency and the gas will be necessary to maintain the mower functioning.
Propane Riding Mowers
A Toro propane riding mower can hold a canister of 43.5 lbs of liquid propane. The engines in propane generators have been changed to operate on gas, and can’t accept any gas. Propane does not degrade exactly the identical manner that oil fuel does, thus a propane model may require less frequent fuel replacement than gas models.
Diesel Riding Mowers
Toro diesel riding mowers have a capacity of 12 gallons. Diesel fuel is more efficient than petrol and puts less carbon monoxide than either propane or gasoline. While diesel is more expensive than gasoline, it also gives you more miles per gallon.
