I agree that there's no throttle plate in a diesel engine BUT I'd like to see some proof that a diesel engine ingests same amount of air at idle speed as full rpm's. May I ask what you think the purpose of a turbo-charger is? Please explain your theory of how fuel warms an engine without the aid of heat of combustion?There’s no throttle plate in a diesel, so it takes in the same amount of air per revolution at idle that it does revving or working hard. The compression cycle creates heat, but I believe it’s the fuel, when working, that will warm the engine faster than just pumping cold air through the motor with an idle amount of fuel being burnt.
