No matter how trivial and repetitive a thread becomes to some, others are still reading and posting. I may start a thread titled why do some request a thread to end and yet are still reading every post. If they are bored with the thread why are they still reading it? Isnt that like watching a lousy movie over and over? Now back to the idling question that some would like to turn into a debate. Some idle for there reasons some idle for no reason some shutdown for a reason some just shutdown without thinking about it. I guarantee 100 percent of us posting here will think of this thread the next time they are fueling at a truck stop. Its like Seinfeld the show about nothing.

I , for one , do not watch bad movie's over and over.......most movies one time(Tombstone is a exception) as far as this thread............it has for sure been a great source of entertainment for me........ Thank you
As far as thinking of this thread next time I fuel.......I for sure will, and mine will run at 900 rpm, A/C / heat on, keeping the inside comfortable, for the 10-15 minutes that it takes for me to preform this task
My observation's in my "Driving Career" and now traveling in our Coach, most all at the fuel islands are running........like I stated, my observations
And with my last post..........love the animated cartoon of the horse and his owner, I laughed when I first saw it and still do.........and now, as far as this thread.......seems to still be going strong.........

A resurrection of sorts...........
I love to read this everyday..............

I liked your dead palehorse when sleeping in my truck I idle at 1000 rpm because anything lower shakes the bunk to much.

Oh one other thing as far as noise at the pumps goes it should be a non ussue for coaches as their engines are usually 30 ft behind the pumps.

I noticed when the is topic first started, but this is the first time I actually looked at it to see why there was almost 200 responses in just three weeks. I was told by a Cummins service manager at a Kenworth dealership that on a relatively level run (like much of the midwest) by the time I enter the exit ramp, stop and slowly drive 1/4 mile or more to the fuel pump, the engine is safe to shut down. After a long mountain climb, run the engine for a couple more minutes at idle or high idle and shut it down. I look at the air intake temp and it is easy to see when it comes back down and stabilized which is about when he told me a shut down was safe. It's not that complicated.

No on the banana on peanut butter. Raspberry jam is the answer.

When I had the ECM download at CAT it does show on the 8 page printout. Also how many hours at each RPM level.

Isn't that what killed Elvis??

I spent a number of years as a tour director for trips to Washington, D.C. with school groups. The local and National Park Police would swoop onto the bus and make sure the engine was shut down if the wheels weren't rolling. Tour buses have windows that only open for emergency exit, it would get hot fast on board! Also many municipalities require drivers to shut down the engine at a long stop light. Wonder if their turbos are being damaged??
