  Never heard of that happening.  Probably because I've never heard 
of a fuel shutoff solenoid failing to close when power is shut off.  If 
it closes it doesn't matter how far the fuel screw's been turned, the 
fuel WILL stop.  Kinda like opening your faucet all the way but the 
city turns off the water at the meter.  Nothing's gonna flow!
  Turn that screw up too far on a TD and you'll likely "hole" a piston.

Great Deals on Dell Laptops. Starting at $499.
