Make sure you get an "adult sized" kit. Our buses use a lot of fuel. What's more is that they pump even more than they use. At full throttle my bus is easily RETURNING over 1 gallon per minute from the injection pump. You need to heat enough oil to go through the system, not just to burn. On the plus side, that circulation will help keep things mixed up and warm in the tank. Basically, just make sure you get a big enough tank that you aren't constatly refueling and that you have a high enough capacity heater to keep up with what the engine is going to draw, not just what it is going to burn. I'm sure if you let them know what engine you have and what the application is those guys will be able to set you up correctly.

as far as heating the fuel that is going to the engine and then returned to the tank.......

i had copper wvo lines in my first skoolie that were accessable while sitting in the drivers seat. One thing that suprised me is that I a radiator in the wvo tank heating things up and no matter how hot the oil was going toward the engine, it was always hotter in the return line on it's way back to the tank.

It must pick up a good deal of heat from the motor/injector pump.

my motor also returned a lot of fuel. At idle i would estimate that for every gallon of fuel the bus actually uses it returns at least 10 to the tank.
