    Chances are THIS will make you feel better:

    I just had my 500 gallon tank filled earlier this week. Marked ( off -road) diesel $2700. That's approximately $5.40 CDN per imperial gallon.

    Well then (bit of maths/fault-finding); two different tractors + the tractors regular [experienced] operators = both tractors experiencing a decrease in fuel economy [assuming a common fuel source].

    Result/common factor is the fuel being used.

    Just found my own answer;according to the local farmers the most recent fuel available is a biofuel mix.Again not a huge thing for me but the big operators are really feeling it.
