If you lean a turbo diesel significantly you will merely increase pumping losses and
decrease fuel economy.  You'll also destroy any performance.


Just before going on vacation  --LOREN  mentioned the importance of going back to
SICS.   ---I happen to agree with him----      and I think your observation is of such
importance that it should be debated in this forum.

I just love debating things --that is how I learn   ---yeah my nose does bleed at
times -Ja ?  --but --CUT and RUN ? is not on my Radar.

Example :    Val Christian  and I have debated the issue --does a diesel  slow down a
Rabbit when you take your foot off the pedal ?----simple ? you say.  Not so fast --- it is
so complex that we are still debating years later.------------ of course the answer is Yes
and NO .---- are we still friends ?   absolutely. Read every thread Val Christian ever
wrote and you may learn a few things ( I did --and saved a lot of money).

Andrew please explain  "Pumping Losses" ---- You totally lost me there.---BUT it sounds
interesting to me.  ------------  TIA.
