I am a CDL A licensed driver, and the first semi I loaded up with my diamond coating went from 5 to over 8 MPG, and that was in 2006. The old smoker stopped smoking and got quieter, all the hundreds of other treated vehicles did likewise. Question is, now what?

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.
