The Dive bot will use the negative tank if you order a crash dive using the right side icon.

If you are already submerged and you order crash dive using the icon, the negative tank is not used.

Edit: after testing, I see the dive bot uses the neg tank only the first time a cd is ordered. If you order a cd, he uses the neg tank; if you surface, then order a cd again, he does not use the negative tank. I will fwd this to the devs, thanks.

Other things to note:
You must manage the compressed air.
Helm Bot will not switch to Diesel upon surfacing.
Good tips, I will include them above, thanks!
