No idling and "warming up". So many evidently think diesels are never supposed to be shut off once they're started (not saying you do) while all it takes is a turn of the key for a restart.

Do you have to pass emissions tests in Florida?

My buddy has a 08 F350 with the turbo diesel 6.4 and gets better milage than me in my Explorer with 4.0 V6. All he has done is some exhaust mods and a performance chip.

Perhaps not great for the environment but helps the wallet and gets more power at the same time.
