It seems like most of us bus folks keep a constant eye on the ever fluctuating price at the diesel pump. Based on some recent polls in the forum, most of our bus conversions get somewhere between 5–10 mpg.

This town is located about 45 miles east of San Diego and about five miles from the Tecate, Mexico border. Many of us fueled up just before getting to the park as some people are not very trustworthy of the fuel in Mexico but I fueled up once with the bus and twice with my car south of the border and had no problems.Read More
