Cylinder count game

A few weeks ago I was doing the 'winterizing' of a few tools. I realized - this takes a whole day! Then I thought about the equipment I've acquired and (engineers tend to do these things) how many overall cylinders it encompasses.

Truck - 8
Car - 6
Vulcan - 2
Mower - 1
Tiller - 1
Kombitool - 1
Chainsaw - 1
Pressure washer - 1
Generator - 1

22 total (or 30 spark plugs to change since the truck has 16)

I just have a small suburban lot to take care of. You guys with land must have enough to shake a connecting rod at!

What's your count? Gas/Diesel/LP... all count, but it has to run.
Even more fun - total # valves, displacement, estimated HP, ...

Spark plugs?

'06 Vulcan 900cc- 2 (2 cyl)
'11 Honda 750cc- 4 (2 cyl)
'14 Focus 2000cc- 4 (4 cal)
'14 Mustang 3700cc- 6 (6 cyl)
?? Craftsman Riding Mower 500cc- 1 (1 cyl)
?? Leaf Blower 49cc - 1 (1 cyl)
?? Other Leaf Blower 49cc - 1 (1cyl)

19 spark plugs, 6148cc's of displacement. (Sheesh, some of you have one engine bigger than the combined displacement of everything I've got!) Not too bad I guess. Everything else is electric. Batteries have come a long way. I'm on 3 acres and I can do all of the weed eating with one battery on an electric weed eater; and have enough juice leftover to swap the battery onto my electric hedge trimmer and do the hedges.

Winterizing isn't too bad. A little seafoam in the tank of all of the lawn and garden stuff and the bikes; and everything with a battery goes on a tender. Oil changes can be a pain. Seems I've somehow managed to get everything 'synced' so they tend to all need the oil changed all at once it seems. Matter of fact, I need to change the riding mower before the season starts, and both bikes and both cars are due here shortly. 5 vehicles to change the oil in here in the next couple of weeks!
