FOR SALE - 1999 Ford E350 Bus w/ V-4 vegistroke system! 221.7k miles, $4,800 OBO
Great value, Bus works well, no known issues. carries 12 passengers + driver, +overhead loft that sleeps 2-4.

call Eric - 503 516 3882 to test drive. In SE Portland

please see craigslist post below for photos and more information:


1999 Ford E350 Diesel Bus w/ Veggie Oil Conversion
(bus was featured in hit TV Series "Grimm")

professional veggie oil conversion performed by a local Portland company that was called Dino Fuels Alternatives.
For more information about "veggiestroke" (the particular conversion for Ford Powerstroke engines) check out:
You can start it up from your diesel tank, and then switch to running on veggie oil with the flick of a switch.

NEW asking price is now $4,800 OR BEST OFFER
(veggie oil conversion alone cost over $3k)

custom 30 gallon tank welded and attached adjacent the rear bumper for veggie oil, so this has 30 gallons of diesel (or biodiesel) capacity and 30 gallons of veggie oil capacity, which could give you a total range of 700 miles!

The odometer reading is 221755 which means that it's about halfway through it's engine life (diesel engines quit in the 400's, unlike gas engines.)
Great vehicle, great engine, can do 75 mph on the freeway no problem.

Stereo system on board, and a custom overhead storage space has been created (or sleeping loft.)
Tires are in good shape, but they have white paint on them. Transmission was replaced about 15000 miles ago. Automatic transmission, drives pretty easily, very similar to driving a Ford truck (like an F150 or similar.)

Seats for 12 passengers plus a driver. Are easy to pull out if you want more space. This could be a great workhorse vehicle for a local organization that wants to run on veggie oil. It also stands on its own as a diesel system, veggie system needn't be engaged at all times. The mechanical and electrical systems are up to reliable standards, and have more to give.

In 2006 bus was purchased from the Philadelphia, PA transit system and has since been used to shuttle from Portland and Seattle with the company Shared Route. Not much use in the last few years - Bus is ready for some love and utilization.

Text or email for more information, or to arrange a time to come by and look at it. Clean title! Thanks for looking!"

Default Value! Long live WVO!

sorry to post a FOR SALE item on this forum!
I didn't see any regulations or restrictions in the policy, so hopefully this will help the bus come together with someone who can utilize it. $4.8k or best offer. Can't get a vehicle with the V-4 Biofuel Technologies system for much cheaper than that, eh???

Selling the bus on behalf of my friend, who is now a full-time student and doesn't have a need for such a large vehicle at this time.

I appreciate the consideration!
peace, love, and non-violence

Guessing it's not actually a "V4" if it was installed by Jason when he owned the company under the DFA moniker. Good luck with your sale - with a little love it could make a nifty conversion into an RV!

I would be interested in looking at this if it were closer. Oregon to Louisiana is quite a haul!

Arrow Some suggestions which will help you in building more trust in between usres

Hello GreenBus,

I think this is very reasonable price for Ford E350 Bus. But for your profit I will suggest you that you can also add some paper proofs & actual buying cost proof with it. It will make more believe in your buyers.

She was the woman of committed and she wanted to mind the needy individuals in their entire life. The top resume writer is so enormous and I feel so terrible in the wake of hearing this news. She committed their life to the family and companion. She was so kind and minding lady.
