They do make such trucks. They're powered by Cummins.

Can you tell when the MDS is activated? After 1000 miles i have never seen a light or anything. I drive it kind of fast and the mileage SUCKS. I dont drive it everyday so I dont care that much - just curious.

You can turn off MDS with a programmer. Otherwise, run in 5th manually all the time.

variations of MDS have been on big truck diesels for 10+ years but they progressively cut off cylinders until you can be cruising on 1 but will bring them back seamlessly instantly keep it on burn less fuel so you can play more!
