Barry, me too were educated on this, including specialists observating same advice. Steve, I had red this article before, wich corroborate to people like Nigel Calder. What I couldn't explain is in a heavy traffic city like here, people spend (an average) 3 hours per day in traffic, mostly iddling the engines, but diesel cars/van/truck are still very reputable for longevity and reliability. I can understand the efficiency math (running a big beast to power tinny 500W to your DC system), where oversized generators are wasting more fuel per Watt, if compared to smaller unities) but cannot understand why marine diesels wear faster if iddling, copared to automtive diesels iddling. Should marine learn a thing or two from automotive industry ?
