The good part is you win on total BTU, so the diesel is also used more efficiently.

It's this sort of benefits the HHO-crowd is screaming about, but can't realize as they have to produce their own H2.

Of course, going CNG all the way is better than diesel, but adding it to diesel is apparently more easily accepted in the transport world. The bi-fuel trucks will still run on diesel alone.
