The Waterboy

Continuity mistake: The final game is reported by the ESPN announcer as being the "Inaugural Bourbon Bowl", meaning it's the first one. Later, on Bobby Boucher's jersey, there is a patch that says "Bourbon Bowl 50th Anniversary 1948-1998".

Factual error: In the scene when the opposing team's players interrupt the party on the bayou and the knife is pulled, the patches on the sheriff's uniform say County Sheriff. Louisiana has parishes not counties.

Continuity mistake: After Bobby jump-kicks player 62 down to the floor, because he insulted him, the football appears beside player 62 between shots, as he lies on the floor. (00:29:20)

Question: According to IMCDB, Bobby rides a John Deere 200-series lawn tractor. Assuming he didn't do anything to spruce it up, how many miles would he realistically be able to ride it before having to fill it up? How fast could he ride it? Does it take regular gasoline or would it need a special fuel mix? I couldn't find any specs on its mpg, although JD says it has a 3.5 gallon tank and a top speed of 5.5 mph.
