Q&A - Leaving a Diesel Running While Refuelling
One of the most recent items for discussion in an RV forum that I belong to was the issue of leaving your engine running while refuelling.
The owners with diesels say because of the low flash point of diesel that they never shut their engines off because they need to cool their turbo.
We know that in Canada there are signs saying to turn engine off when refuelling and this also applies to cell phones or any electrical devices.
Some of the owners are quite sarcastic when I suggested they are asking for trouble by not shutting their engines down when refuelling.
