Thanks CB...

HOME! 11 mpg on the run home from Flagstaff via Oak Creek Cyn., Sedona and up a 6 percent 7 mile grade on I-17.

The solar system worked perfectly, nothing broke or malfunctioned .

Nice!
There's a bus like yours in cali at auction right now. 97 with mechanical 5.9 and 3.54 rear.
I wish I had the money.

Sounds like you had a great trip. Nothing breaking is always a huge plus. How many miles total?

About 250ish.

Our Scan Gauge D showed 13.8 mpg until we got to THE (6%) GRADE. Love the SCD, fun to watch and helps the MPG by making you aware of what your right foot can do to MPG.
