EPA paper on medium duty and heavy duty trucks.

Lots of amazing stuff in here including how a 2011 6.7 Ram cummins runs the EPA cycles with 50% payload added (page 106) then they go on to adjust many variables.

... but from page 67 onwards it gets very noteworthy, describing the measured effect of several fuel saving technologies.
