Double Decker Hybrid 10.69 miles per gallon

In a recent issue of Route One (Thursday the 21st of October), the UK magasine on buses, the Volvo hybrid Chassis B5LH with a classic UK double decker body was evaluated.
The four page detailed article reports on experiences and performance. The fuel economy during the test runs were 10.69 miles per gallon and the average fuel economy over six days operation was 7.8 miles per gallon. The full apreciation of the smooth driving performance and the positive comments on the drivers place laid out for professional drivers warmed my heart particularly.

The Volvo B5LH is equipped with a full hybrid system with versatile properties that meet fuel economy improvements beyond 50% in the city and more than 35% in rural operation. (The fuel consumption is lowered with up to 35%.)
