The 15 pax Ram Wagon my family daycare uses for shuttle runs toasted the entire powertrain yesterday. Engine, tranny, the works. After getting the repair estimate, we decided to look at replacing it. We looked at the Dodge/Mercedes Sprinter, getting 30MPG. However, it only seats 12 and from experience those 3 extra seats make a huge difference on both shuttle runs and field trips. No go Serendipitously, the local government fleet just ran out the lease on their Chevy 15 pax Wagons. After finding out the dealer had one left, we went to look. 4 hours later, we have an '03 Van with working A/C that has factory installed 15 pax seating and according to the EPA, should use ~5-8% less gas (15 vs 14). As we have been using 100-135 gal/month, this will make a fair dent in the fuel bill compared to the old van. Yes, its still a FSP, but for our needs it seems to be the most effective and most FE option out there. And that's good.
