Pretty sure since its a B42 series it would be gas. B422's or kind of rare. Only made from 1960 to 1965, with only 923 made. If you have the oprotunity to buy one I would buy it.

Much more power than a B42?How bad would a six wheeler be on gas just cruising around?

I talked to a guy with a B70/707 and it gets 2 mpg!Just wondering if this would be a bit better?

My father's B85 with a 707 gets about 4, but it is just a tractor. He also has a B422, but it is not road worthy. It would do better than the 707, but not great. Buy it just for fun.
