My contact there is James Wilson; Phone 520-282-0498. Call him and talk about beta testing a battery. He might ship you one for free. Tell him Ben referred you.


Here is all the info I posted in another thread here before Matt. Silent Steve hooked me up with James at Bug-O-Rama. Give him a call and see if he can do you up with a Beta test.

How's the bus holding up in the heat? I've learned some new shit Ben!! I'll hook you up with the info next time we talk!

I use one of the spare micro wires for a dash dummy light for too hot coolant. No need for a gauge then, just a dummy light. Works great and it's realiable!

Holding up good I think. About a week of triple digit heat. Haven't had the computer on in a few months, but the water temp gage I have was reading about 25 degrees high when computer was at 180 degrees. So going of that, I peak at around 190 to 195 degrees and the radiator kicks in and it drops to 175 fairly quick. I have no worries.

My biggest issue is smelling gas at times. Did find some drizzle from the soft to hard line connections on the right fuel rail. Multiple checks since, I'm not leaking anywhere. Had a gas cap gasket issue, fixed that, still smell gas at times. Could be passing cars.

Last tank of gas, I got 22.something MPG around town driving.
