venturatiger, 119 (now 816) is an L113CRL, not a L94UB, perhaps just a little bit too old to be an L94.

The Ethanol bus pictured in the first photo, as VenturaTiger mentioned, was delivered a year later than the other 2. And it drives a hell of a lot better too. In my Ventura days, if I was forced to drive an Ethanol powered bus for the day, this was the one I preferred, purely because it went when it was supposed to and had a nice feel about it.

Perhaps the shortcomings in the earlier two ethanols were fixed by the time this one came along, Scania must of worked with Ventura to come up with some fixes and these were incorporated into the later bus, but I think the earlier two have had some tinkering along the way.

why does 851 (103) not show up as being Ethanol powered on the fleet lists?

Cheers!

Flipper was quite possibly the cutest bus out. But it's been stripped of it's cuteness and returned to the Ventura livery, right?

Thanks,

According to Comeng301M's flickr it 119 (816 now) is in a boring livery. See the picture here. Image
