Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

Ultilmantly I would like a caskade setup on my car hauler in an over head configuration and go for a thousand mile range and keep the cost down by fueling at home. Some where along the line the road tax issue will come up but it should easy to address as long a natural gas stays cheap and plentiful.http://www.skoolie.net/forum/downloa...hp?id=4451&t=1

Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

After looking at the map,I was like this sucks......then I thought about how much it(and the tanks wt) would be and then a big tank...
Initial fuel might be $$ but over say a couple thousand mile trip,ending up back home where its gaurnteed filling up.,its not to bad in actuality
Dang spelling is crap

I see that you have a few guitars. Do you use open tunings? Do you do any Kottke stuff?

Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

I noticed you put a valve stem on your fuel cap to pressurize the fuel tank. That is frickin' genius, man! I'm going to do that to all my diesels!

Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

Ya hey no can play like Kottke GreenHouse all time favorite album. Hardly get to play any more just so busy with the house and the CNG conversion.
That tire valve got me out of a jamb for sure, when fuel pumps couldn`t and the bus was on 15% incline nose down, putting 15/20 lbs of air pressure made all the difference and the 3208 started right up. I`ll put the bus on ebay and some craigslist. Just showed it yesterday and running good and ready to go. I need to take a pic with the trailer hooked up.
