Fuel Use at Idle

Does anyone have any documentation on the fuel consumption for the new 6.7 at idle, or at some high idle level?

Trying to figure out that the break-even point is for leaving the truck running vs shutting down and restarting.

I'm also curious about this. I do a lot of idle time. Currently my engine hours are 650 and my idle hours are 240. I'm pretty sure I'm wasting money.
