The gas tank size of a school bus & fuel cost?

"What is the gas tank size of a 44 passenger school bus have?"


INTERNATIONAL 3400 CHASSIS WEIGHTS WITH ALTERNATE Fuel Tanks

The regular size of a school bus gas tank is 35gallons and can be fitted wih 100 gallon tanks also:

Base Weight 35 Gallons RSM 65 Gallons RSM 40 Gallons BTR * 100 Gallons BTR

These buses use allot of gas and put out allot of bad emissions that our
children have to breathe.
The cost of fuel is a huge concern now to our city operators causing some to
reduce service and even suspend service during certain days of the week because
of the fuel cost. Petroleum diesel at $4.60 a gallon will cost the city $161.00 dollars
just to fill up one bus. Multiply this cost times a Dallas County Schools fleet
One of the 10 largest transportations fleets (1200+ buses) in the nation that skyrockets to
$192.000. The real question is how much gas mileage are these buses getting and how much bad emissions are they putting in our environment. Can our nations school bus fleet increase mileage and decrease emissions?

Hi,

Great Blog! Jatropha is a good second generation feedstock, however there is not enough first generation fuel being used.

This short video explains how anyone anywhere can refine their own biofuel
