Misinformation was not my word but I can assure you that the majority of truckers shut down at the pumps. I shut down to check the oil take a quick peak at the engine and the quiet is peaceful. If its a full service pump it would be rude and unfair to the person pumping your fuel but thats another story. I have been driving trucks for 30 years so my obersvervations should qualify as fact!

My buddy has been driving OTR trucks for almost forty years and so I asked him about this. He said he's never worried about it either way but he personally thinks you should shut down because of the noise, etc., and so that's what he does. And that's what I do , too.

when you use a word you own it, just as anyone else that used if before you does. Why run from it. Be loud be proud.

While I appreciate your 30 years of truck driving, I wont be taking your recommendations over the engine and coach builder's recommendations. Unless of course, your willing to rely on your observed facts and warranty my turbo. Let me know.

I borrowed the word from a previous poster so I dont have rightful ownership. I was not recommending anything I was stating that most truckers shutdown ...period. the turbo wont be harmed providing the necessary cooling period has been achieved. The only time that I consciously cool the turbo down is when pulling into a rest area.

Idling while refueling Diesel pushers

Just install a turbo saver.... Allows the engine to run with the key in the off position until a certain turbo temperature is reached and then shuts down.

As for me.... I just idle while fueling my diesels.

OK, two questions.

1. If it's that easy to cook (coke) a turbo, why don't manufacturers put in a light that turns green when it's safe to shut down? They have a light that turns green to let you know the engine is ready to start.

2. Would repeated coking of the oil in the turbo show up on an oil analysis?

The only reason I shut my rig down during refueling, is because mine came with a starter on it.
