MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – The Grasshopper Co. has developed a new online tool designed to calculate fuel costs and the impact of commercial mowing equipment.

The Fuel and Emissions Calculator – available at grasshopperfuelsavings.com – presents visitors with fuel costs and savings comparisons, greenhouse and smog-forming gas emissions per hour of mowing, and overall profitability comparisons for each of the three most popular fuel choices for commercial mowers: gasoline, propane and diesel.

The result is a tool that provides a comprehensive analysis of the impacts each fuel type has on budgets and the environment.

“Our industry is greatly influenced by fuel prices, so this calculator will be the essential tool for determining fuel costs,” says, Ruthanne Stucky, executive vice president and marketing director. “And, as stewards of the land, we also need to be aware of the environmental impact of our equipment. This new tool does both accurately and conveniently.”

Due to the volatile nature of fuel prices, the calculator is designed for individual customization which allows users to revisit the program and calculate new totals any time prices fluctuate.
