Man, I feel your pain, but the Canadian Government has to find some way of paying for those fine roads and the RCMP.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Happy New Year.

Re: 2 fuel tanks

reprobate i also have 2 gas tanks on our bus it has a manual valve on the floor to switch tanks i will guess they are 35 to 40 gallons each i will be keeping them after hearing stories of ripping off awnings at gas stations etc. how high is your bus now? what is your mpg? stuff to think about i guess

Re: 2 fuel tanks


I keep thinking of advantages to dual tanks.
With a filler on each side, you can fill one tank when the other side of the bus cannot be maneuvered to the pump.
Yes, too many filling station awnings get hit with tall vehicles, so anything we can do to make it easier to refuel, is a very good thing.
