    You sure that’s idle time? Or total run time……

    Well I guess it could be total run time. The deal on the dash didn't clarify. Just said hours. Didn't think it could be total hours.

    That’s probably total….

    Next time you work check start and stop times…..

    I believe that is total engine hours. Divided out that's about 45mph average. I would not think that would be high idle hours. A scanner might give you the total idle hours.
