No o2 sensors in diesels.

Are you talking about a gas engine? A bad o2 sensor can effect mpg but they aren't terribly expensive and last an easy 100,000 miles. If his was bad it should have been replaced and removing it from the exhaust was the hard part.

Uh if you were describing the ebp sensor cat wouldn't even be in the description. It's probably some guy that was to cheap to buy a new o2 sensor and told his buddy who has a diesel to clean his because it will improve mileage.

You would be surprised if you knew how slow some people are. My neighbor thought the muffler was the cat on his truck until I laughed at him. He also thought his glow plugs were spark plugs. Not everyone is an expert in the diesel field.
