I seriously looked into converting one of my buses over to WVO. The particular bus was a Thomas Saf-T-Liner with a Cat 3208T/Allison. The bus was being used on a daily route that went about 200 miles per day.
What I found and what others have also found is the amount of WVO a bus uses in a day is more than most cars use in a month or more. Finding enough WVO to run the bus becomes impractical.
I realized I would have to purchase a truck with a tank and pump to collect the WVO. I would also have to spend a day or more per week collecting and processing the WVO for use in the bus. In addition, I would have to build some kind of a WVO processing center in order to utilize that much WVO.
That isn't even taking into consideration the tax liability I would be incurring for using the "free" fuel.
As for your $4K budget for the bus and conversion, I think you are not going to be happy with what you find. That is unless you are willing to sleep on the floor, use ice chests and Coleman stoves, and freeze in the winter and cook in the summer.
