Re: New Member 1987 Blue Bird

Great looking bus, I just got mine, a 1984 All American 3802 turbo, got half of the seats removed, mine came with two fuel tanks, but I cant find a way to switch tanks, on the dashboard has sign that says use only right side tank, does yours have two tanks?. The bus is just like yours, I really like the paint, can't wait to see more pics.

Thanks. Yes mine has 2 tanks 50 gallons each side. they both work however the fuel gauge for the right tank has stopped working I think the sending unit may have went out, I can get about 350 mile on a tank depending on if im fighting wind or not. so when I start getting close to 300 miles on the odometer I switch tanks or get fuel.
