The last time I was in a vehicle with bad idle settings was a
Volkswagen Kombi - a nine-seater van. Not only could you tweak the
idling with a screwdriver (at least, I think that's what Dad used - it
was his, not mine), you didn't even have to exit to do so, because the
engine settings sat between the front two seats! Is that the
equivalent of running everything in a terminal?
