@ renegade: each kit consists of two air springs for the rear wheels. so if you want front air suspension too, you will need 2 kits per bus.

@ napster & arun: vibhor's answer is right!

Thats great Pics Raj !

Waiting for the complete ones.

@ Neil,

It depends on the driving style again :-).

An average driver can fetch 4.5-5.5 kmpl from bus!

Not sure about trucks!

@ zinam: i have spoken to many many drivers in kerela buddy. nobody gets average above 4 kmpl in buses, its close to impossible according to them. even the company claims 4 kmpl with the full body built. and companies are known to brag about FE figures always! and these are FE figures in kerela where traffic is very less & roads are open most of the times.

a bus driver in mumbai told me that he gets around 2.5 to 3.5 kmpl!!! anyways, i will give you the correct figures once the bus arrives & starts running.

it will be a complete ownership report as in every other thread in this forum!

These are all my company bus figures :)

Nice to see bus being built from chassis.

So you are building it in Bangalore, i see the registration no. KL (Kerela). And you will be using it in Bombay i guess, great.

the ones on the sides are not mine.

the colour & the design of both the buses will be same (to maintain uniformity!).
