3 stage WVO in bus

How realalistic is it to be able to have a 3 stage/ tank system in a bus? When I say 3 stage I mena raw used oil, Filtered oil, tank for using. Will I be able to do the whole process in the bus or will I need a shop to do the work filtering the oil?

Re: 3 stage WVO in bus

doing it all on board is the most logical method.

move oil at high speed from grease dumpster into "dirty" oil tank

heat dirty oil

pump with high pressure low volume pump into the "clean" oil tank.

That is the system i prefer to use.

Re: 3 stage WVO in bus

ya i was thinkin have the old used oil up over the clean oil. run a line with a filter and pump from the dirty to the clean oil tank. As the oil passes thru the filter/s it will fill the clean tank. the clean tank will essentially just be another storage tank as i will have some sort of system to draw oil from the clean tank to the "fuel" tank. Whats a good use for the wasted durty oil?
