Another difference is the Bus has 150 Gallon fuel tank and larger tires. I have no issues with my Phaeton as far as power. Yeah, I've been on a couple of mountains doing 35mph when I've reached the peak but it barely breaks a sweat doing 70 mph on the turnpike. Got a new 40 ft. Bus coming at the end of the month so we'll see how much difference there really is.

You can't compare gas engine hp vs diesel hp, torque is where you feel power. My wife's v-6 car has more hp than my Duramax diesel pickup but less than half the torque. The car may have more acceleration but the diesel would pull it backwards.
