I even went ahead and code it to remember its last state instead of defaulting to off at each engine start.
Exactly....I could not agree with you more....just sitting at idle burning gas just bothers me to no end....I have no problem enjoying the power that the V8 produces when driving, but just sitting there while the engines sucks down the fuel is just plain wasteful both of the gas the the car's capabilities....
