I believe that this thread and ones similar to it belong either in the "buy / sell" forum or in the Staff/Director's corner. I am moving it to the STaff/DIrector's corner forum in fact. Thank you for this worthwhile discussion.

Update on our bus:

We had the injectors flowed and turned the pump up 15% (a full turn on the aneroid control rod) and hooked the 14ft tandem axle trailer behind it. It now runs loaded with the trailer behind it like it did empty. Really a big difference. I haven't checked the mileage yet.
I had to turn the exhaust pipe out to the side to prevent it from blackening the front of the white trailer. It was pointed straight out the back right at the trailer.

Before I give it more fuel we will need gauges (boost pressure and pyrometer) then taller tires to bring the cruising RPM down into the torque range.

We took it on a 254 mile round trip last weekend and first impression is really good.

Oh, yeah, federal regulations now state that there will be no more school busses with standard transmissions, if it's a school bus it will have an automatic. I don't know when this becomes effective, or even if it already has.

We just returned from Teen Extreme Caving Adventure and we're loving our bus more and more. We still have to put on the taller tires to give it more top speed, but the modifications have so far netted us an increase in mileage from 7.3mpg when we got the bus, to 8.4mpg pulling the trailer.
I still need to get the gauges installed and the taller tires before I tweak the pump any more. We are going to do the taller tires to increase speed and decrease engine speed and noise, however I know of another club who installed a three speed "brownie" behind the transmission. This gives them an overdrive gear, they tell me it decreased engine speed by 500 rpm at cruising speed. This should get them a nice increase in mileage.

Oh yeah, the new federal regulations on the formulation of diesel fuel go into effect in January '07. Most of the fuel we are buying now is the new super-low sulfer formulation. This is like everything else the government gets it's fingers into: it has minimal benefits for the environment and maximum downside for consumers. My diesel pump friend says he is rebuilding pumps that are worn out in places that pumps have never worn before. There is no lubricating quality left in the new "dry" fuel. He is ordering parts for pumps from Bosch and others that he's never had to replace before. He recommends we mix some additive with our fuel, so we are using Lucas Lubricity additive. At work (Heavy Equipment Rental Company) we are using another additive that adds lubricants to the fuel. Any good additive will work, just not automatic trans fluid (ATF). ATF is a detergent and will work very will to clean deposits from the tank, lines, pump and injectors, but doesn't do much for lubricity.
