How many of ye let the engine run, rather than turn it off?

Never, waste of gas, causes unnecessary pollution and wear and tear on the car.

Yep, Halliburton and Schlumberger folks around here have done this for decades ... and years ago the 3k OCI mentality took care of the "un logged" miles ... guess better oils have their backs now ...

Once to run an inverter as we were without power for 24 hours....the engine filled the mufflers with water so it did make a funny gurgling sound after about 4 hours.
About 1/2 gallon an hour...not the most efficient 750W genny.

Northern Montana, I know a couple guys that will let their diesel idle all night when they are out in the open at -20C.

I'm a gas engine guy, so never for me - if it's a really cold climate it's 0w30.

For comparison my 5000 w boat genset uses 1/2 gallon per hour at full load. I have a cheap Coleman 6250 w generator at home that probably burns 2-3 gallons per hour, and is LOUD. I guess that is the difference between a $600 generator and a $8000 generator.

Using synthetic oil and block heater can be handy during cold weather.

trolling
No seriously i don't know if you are trolling or if you are serious... i would never leave an engine running all night unless it was -50 degrees outside and i didn't have a block heater on a car, its a massive waste of gas, it creates wear on the engine, it's unnecessary pollution etc etc etc.
