Has any one noticed that the 70s combines seem to be using more fuel per ha than the older combines. On the 9560s they used a bigger motor 8.1 and now using the 6.8 but it seems to use more fuel has any one else noticed this?

I think you can say that for any manufactor motor, suppose to be cleaner burning yet use more fuel, doesn't make any sense to me.
our 9670 is averaging 1.1 gal per acre in soy's I didn't think that was to bad. it does have a draper on though also.
