Nothing to do with turbo. Most people put unnecessary strain on the engines and waste fuel by excessive and unnecessary idling. Including people on this forum.

Note, "drive gently" means staying out of boost and within low rpms (< 2.5-3k is my limit for cold engine).

Btw, also people who warm engine by idling and then stomp on it forget that transmission oil and particularly rear diff oil do not get to operating temperature when sitting idle.
