is the fuel bowser hidden away near the gate or do you just get the lorry to deliver it to the field 3 times a day??

She's using about 400 litreas a day and then a further 150 at night to get you right through until morning.

How much fuel would your donkey use on a muck spreader, 3 liters an hour?

Yes. It uses about 6 litres an hour, but our loader produces diesel (much like a Fendt) and so the excess 3 litres really helps us.

We run two tractors and spreaders, plus a loader and charge a tenner an hour.
We dont make money, infact it costs us about £300 a day, but i only work as i love it so much.... :roll:

I think i will do all my muck spreading at night from now, as you seem to use a lot less at night ploughing.
Thought having the lights on would use more fuel!
