So i took her out for a run yesterday. Went on a 300 mile road trip to drop off some things and pick some people up. Wind was a major issue on this trip! bucked it for half the trip!! First half bucking the wind i used nearly half the tank cruising at 65mph for 2 hours, then another half hour directly into it at 75mph, then half hour with it behind going back, through a major city of stop and go traffic, then back for another 2 hours with little wind. on way back i used bout half of what i used going up...
anyhow it was 301.2 miles round trip, 23.69 USG, = 12.7 mpg.
but if it's 301.2 miles to 19.7 IMPG = 15.3 mpg, which still sucks lol.
and for the liter/100km bs.. 18.5 litre/100km
Also I think I gotta book it into a tranny shop. when we got to the mid point of the journey, (gf's dad's farm) the bus was off for a bit. When I went to leave, from there to Regina the OD light was blinking and it was shifting HARD and quick.. then on the last 2 hour journey home it was holding steady and driving normal but i could hear it kick down, kick up, kick down, kick up, etc etc. wondering if something isn't shifting right inside that big transmission...
filled to go:
filled when back:
Also the bus is colour changing!! lol
all the black was vinyl that is covering the blue on the bus. We are planning to give her a paint job so all that has to come off. gonna see what she looks like with it off and make a call from there.
