That's about 57 mpg - pretty respectable. The time taken for me to work that out and post it isn't so respectable

A modern turbo doesn't need to cool down idle nowadays, they are usually water cooled, so sensible driving before you turn off, or by the time you park will have be as cools it gets.It the old school turbos that suffered on performance cars, they'd cook the oil in the bearing.All id does is waste more diesel and pollute the air, which is why they wanted to book people for sitting in idling cars.
