Not for me either; but I admire the engineering. And I like diesel power.

I can truly appreciate the engineering and creativity that went into building it. But it is not something that would ever interest me to own or ride.

I'm sure his UDF factor is quite high.

Well, when you consider the lack of weight that engine isn't hauling, once it's tuned properly, it should be a lot more economical than even bobtailing a regular road tractor.
