Run an International school bus on WVO or BD?

I am looking at an older school bus, a 92 I believe, International diesel, to use for road trips for fourwheeling.
Is it viable to convert one of these to run on WVO or BD?
I plan on making long trips, about 800-1800 miles one way with it.

Sure, why not, cheap transportation! You could put the whole team on it as well.

Just paint it up like the Partrige Family Bus, you'd be a real head turner!

Heck, with as much space that you'll have, I'd build an extra 500 gallons worth of tankage into it (at least) and run WVO, or maybe you can find SVO (clean stuff) for around $1.50 a gal. Definately cheaper than the $2.99 I'm paying for #2 in SoCal. And yeah, you GOTTA paint it the Partridge Family motif LOL!!
