I thought it was interesting in that article I mentioned earlier how some pilots run wide open throttle and then regulate power by leaning it back, which puts it leaner than peak exhaust temps. Interestingly enough, that's a lot like a diesel. Of course the problem with a gasoline engine is you can only lean back so far, and then you have to cut back air too or it'll missfire.
