Anything with an L10 is coming back as natural gas for fuel type, and 8610 came back with a model year of 2014.

I certainly didn't check everything! Just a few here and there!

The 1984 demo (8610) likely had the 6V92/Allison at first (I changed the VIN number on it to reflect that), and when Mississauga Transit acquired it in the late spring of 1987, they put the L10/Voith in it. Because I found a link regarding Orion's letter to NHTSA dated 1989, and the L10 diesel engine wasn't used in an Orion bus until 1986, the very year Mississauga Transit ordered nine of their ten Orions with this engine.

We know it's the problem of the decoder that both "E" and "K" in the Orion VIN codes are recognized as a Cummins L10G. The "E" would denote the diesel L10 while the "K" would be the L10G.
