Blue Bird Vision Gas
Built to give you instant savings from the start - and down the road. This bus does not require thousands of dollars of additional equipment to run clean, and costs less to maintain. A low up front cost, reduction in parts and greater availability of gasoline mechanics makes it easier and less expensive to maintain your fleet with the Blue Bird Vision Gasoline bus.
The Vision Gas bus features:
- Exceptional driver-forward visibility
- Unique mirror systems - improving driver awareness and increasing child safety
- Our Vision Gasoline buses do not require a large amount of additional parts to run clean, and produces only 0.05 NOx of emissions. Because the bus doesn’t require thousands of dollars of additional equipment to run cleanly, maintenance costs are also lower over time.
- As with newer passenger vehicles, the in-tank fuel pump is electronically controlled to deliver only the amount of fuel required by the engine; no fuel is returned from the engine to the fuel storage tank. The fuel lines are isolated from static electricity and made from a low vapor permeable material to comply with Environmental Protection Agency emissions standards. As with all liquid-fueled Blue Bird buses, our gasoline fuel system has been tested to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for fuel system integrity.
