Wow, %31 improvement in MPG, even though driveline and engine friction add up to 10%. Can you say over-unity? And on an aerodynamic brick like a truck even?
There is no over unity implied in any of this. Choose the correct unity for comparison and it all makes sense. 30% improvement is plausible via reduced engine and drive line friction. Just do the simple math correctly. And, class 8 trucks have far higher drive-line losses than lightweight passenger cars.

Will DiamondLube net 30% fuel efficiency in a Class 8 tractor trailer? More testing needs to be done to answer that question with more clarity.
