Do you think all the LTL freight companies have their drivers back into the dock and idle down for a few minutes before the drivers shutdown and get out-no-I dont! What about the UPS trucks, Cummins motors, how many UPS drivers are sitting around waiting for their package trucks to idle down?
Oh well, no idle down and 20,000 mile oil changes, no synthetic, and I have seen and driven trucks with 500,000-1 million miles no overhauls and orig turbos. Trucks are tough, made for work sometimes you can baby them all you want, and will still have failures, others you can hammer them, and they run forever. I baby my LBZ for fuel economy.
Exactly, The big trucks I have driven esp the detroits etc always had a 5-7 second idle thing on them, they would idle for 5-7 depending on how factory set them before they shut themselves off. I always leave stuff run always. If im not gonna be goen for more then 10 min I dont worry about the little fuel it will take.sometimes you can baby them all you want, and will still have failures, others you can hammer them, and they run forever
