It takes about 2 V. gallons, of fuel
an acre to run a tractor for plowing
in the Dakotas. according to reports
from several' hundred farmers re
ceived by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. These reports,
summarized in Farmers' Bulletin
1035, cover 2, 3, 4, and 5-plow tract
ors of various makes.
Slight differences In fuel consump
tion are found between machines of
different makes, and there is usually
slightly lower consumption where
gasoline is used than where kerosene
Is used. These differences, however,
are so small that the average of 2
gallons may be taken as coming very
close to the actual acre consumption
for any, type or size of machine.
The more recent reports received
in this regard Indicate that farmers
are having much less trouble than
formerly In handling kerosene-burn
ing tractors. - Nearly two-thirds of
the tractors on the Dakota farms re
porting burn kerosene, and the re
sults are apparently satisfactory, par
ticularly in view of the fact that the
present price .of kerosene Is but half
that of gasolnie. However, the ad
vantage of gasoline In ease vof oper
ation ana in tne additional assur
ance It gives that the engine will
keep running steadily makes many
men prefer the more expensive fuel.
