If I add a retrofit technology to a 1985-2006 long haul diesel truck that saved me 20% on fule costs, as a owner/operator, would that benefit me or the carrier?

I came across a diesel engine retrofit technology that costs me $500 a month but will reduce my diesel fuel usage and expense by 20%-30%. I am an owner operator and will be driving long haul 2-3,000 a week.

It seems to me it more than pays for itself and if so, maybe the broker should be willing to go in on the $400 a month costs, to have it installed? I just wanted others opinions or perspectives on this???
