Re: Toronto Bus - eventually

If you dont have any sources for oil, don't even consider it. It doesn't just fall out of trees anymore. Start searching now for spring. Not only do you have to convert the bus, you need all the details worked out about gathering oil-storing it-cleaning it-etc. Greasing isn't for the weak of heart.
Although the forum isn't as active anymore, if you scan the archives at www.greasecar.com there is tons of great info.

Now lets say I decided not to run the grease conversion (or did it but ran mostly on diesel for availability's sake) how would this engine fair for fuel economy?
I've done a fair few road trips now and my biggest problem has always been the cost of fuel. Spending in the thousands to travel is not fun! Its making me consider a smaller van.

As good as most diesels-maybe 10 mpg. Actually, veggie get about 10 % less milage-but the cost makes it worth it.
