KW Exec: Natural Gas Gaining Popularity but Diesel Will Still Dominate

&amp;ldquo;Fair amount of complexity&amp;rdquo; comes with dual-fuel Westport GX/HD, as on this T800. It has a tank for diesel exhaust fluid (with blue cap) and a diesel particulate filter (the shorter stack behind the cab), as well as large cryogenic saddle tanks (one on each side) to store liquefied natural gas.
