how can the turbo timer have any affect on someone leaving the car in
gear?  If some idiot leaves his car in gear the car will jump as soon as
the fool tries to let off the clutch before he / she gets out of the
car.  that's a dumb arguement.

this is possible, however all my (3) turbo cars have a kill button on
the timer for situations like this.  it's the operator's job to shut off
his engine when filling up.

this is a valid concern I guess...  although I've never heard of it

it's not too much liability for other manufacturers.  :-/  Hmmm....
