 Maybe should be gals per 1000 bf rather then per hour.  My Kohler gas would take 1 GPH or 1 gal per 300 bf, My Isuzu diesel will take 1/2 GPH sawing 325 bf per hour sawing 325 BF per hour . If sawing by myself and less bf per hour the fuel usage will go way  down  .  Steve

Exactly right, whether the saw is idling or running at full throttle, big difference.
