I find it interesting that the seller's description doesn't always match the vehicle description. We were told our bus had a 90 gallon tank. Specifically. The guy was definite. I measured the tank the other day (just curious) when we dipped it. We had the tank float out (it has a tiny hole in the brass float we had to solder closed) and checked the condition of the fuel. Turns out the tank size = 143 gallon so we figure it probably holds 140 gal. and we have 1/2 tank of diesel left that has been sitting in there since we parked it in my daughters back yard in August 2009. I'm amazed. That diesel would have been stolen the first winter in Franklin. Used to heat someones house! Someone siphoned out both 90 gallon tanks on our Eagle over one winter. After that we kept very little fuel in it (we think we know who did it... they sold the fuel for drugs).
Current diesel prices up at Isleta Pueblo was $3.569/gal X 140 gallons = $499.66
That's a lot of hot dogs to sell!
