We have a fleet of ten International 28 passenger 2013 buses with a MaxForce 7 engine
Local stop and go service. Anyway to increase our MPG which is about 4 (four) MPG
Also, our mechanic has many problems servicing and we have been forced to send to local International dealer for repair which takes weeks. Would love to communicate with other operations that have been experiencing the same issues. Any suggestions?
