Just my thoughts. 10-15 minutes is too long. My 1999 7.3l I would let it idle for about 5 minutes rarely 7min before I just drive easy. this was my policy even in -20s unless I was towing I would let it high idle for 10 before moving. Had maybe an 8-11 mile drive at that time. With your new ride having the emissions components it would be better to idle less and just do a nice long drive on the weekends and once its warmed up get on the throttle a bit and let it complete a regen/fully warmed up etc.
The regen cycles kill fuel economy and its best to just do a complete cycle on a nice highway drive weekly then let it do partials multiple times a week etc.
Again just my thoughts
