Yeah, i usually do it this time of year, sometimes even in the summer so i put less wear on my starter. I think i read somewhere that 7.3s only burn like a half gallon an hour so its not bad at all.

static electricity can start a fire while fueling however, I would think there would be less chance of this happening with diesel vs. unleaded fuel because of how much more combustable unleaded fuel is. I could be wrong.

Actually you could be breaking the law. But that is a whole nother topic.

What they are worried about is the static electricity build up. But since the filler neck is metal and the nozzle on the pump is metal it grounds out. There for you have no worries about the static electricity.

You should have told her that putting diesel in a gas vehicle will increase mileage to 100MPG. If I'm towing something or the engine is cold I'll leave it running. If I'm just putting around I'll shut him down.

Yep, In a class, the chief actually was smoking as he was filling up canisters with gas. This lead into a discussion about different things while filling up your car.
