    Unfortunately Volvo is not bringing this to the US initially, just Europe.

    Volvo Trucks to market methane-diesel engine

    After years in development, a diesel engine fueled by a mixture of methane gas and diesel will be introduced by Volvo Trucks.

    "This unique technology allows us to combine the advantages of gas with the diesel engine's high efficiency rating, which is about 30-40 percent superior to that of the spark plug engine," said Lars Martensson, environmental director Volvo Trucks. "As a result, this truck consumes considerably less energy than traditional gas trucks do."
