Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
Yes i have just finished cleaning carb and reassembeling all parts runs great but i noticed that it uses a lot of gas. it runs realy well no miss or sputer like its fluding. but i have a small yard my old mower was a yardsman 5 hp mulcher and i could fill it half way with gas do my lawn and my nieghbors no problem at all and still have gas left. i didnt adjust any thing on the carb just made sure it was clean even puled the float bowl off and made sure it was all clean. well im just wondering if there is a way to adjust the carb or some way so it dont use alot of gas. i know on my mower its a comicial one so 6 speeds lol i use it on setting 2. just a good walk. any ways it has stop slow and fast. if i put it on fast all the way it runs a lil slower if i move it towards slow a lil the rpm's go higher like it shoudl sound. so i dont even know if it has a choke on it. if i set it to stop it shuts off no chocke as far as i can tell. i may be wrong its a new mower to me. if any one coulg give me good advice to set carb and where the settings are ill be very greatfull. only place i see to adjust is a rod going to the back of the motor that controls the buterfly open and closed. no settings for high idle or low. oh other thing is when i do set it to slow the rpms do not change??? just stays high. so basicaly the carb or somthing is out of whack. i know if u set mowers to slow the rpm's should slow down a bit but no change in rpm. thanx guys have a great day or night....

Hey Tyson..my name is Keith..i cant help you with the fuel economy..but it sounds like your throttle cable outer casing has slipped ..so inspect it and and see if you can adjust it and tighten it down to where the throttle will work correctly..i hope this has helped
