Re: Fuel Mileage, what do you get

Being new and only about 900 miles of travel on my bus. I averaged about 10.5 mpg from Alabama to Michigan. This was rolling though the mountians and running on average of 63mph.

as for the engine, again I am new, I was told it was a 8.2L International. But I can only find 8.2L Detroit Diesel. I am currently looking into what I have.

Re: Fuel Mileage, what do you get

I get 10 mpg in my '92 International Ward. It has a dt466 engine with a mt643 trans. I normally cruise at 62 mph. I could get over 11 mpg is I slowed down, but 62 is comfortable with this setup.
