The term "Lawnmower beer" is not meant to denote something you use to fuel the lawnmower.

you won't get to an FG of 1.003. maybe 1.025 if you're really lucky, probably closer to 1.04+

I ended up with a starting gravity of 1.128, that was the most furious fermenting I've ever seen for like 3 days, haven't seen much action since. I did a 900ml yeast starter. I'll give it a few weeks and check the gravity, Probably gonna chalk this one up as experimental failure.

If that reading is true (not a mixing issue) you must have ended up closer to 2 gallons than 1. In that case it probably won't power the lawnmower, you're gonna have to drink it.
