There are two ways to stop a diesel engine. The first, as noted above, is cutting off the fuel and the safest way to stop the engine. The second it to cut off the air to the engine. This is usually only done as an emergency measure, and not typically used by the manufacturers to kill the engine in the normal course of things.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
