Warm weather running the a/c? Just fine. They'll go something nuts like 4-5 days on a tank just idling.
They'll even regen the dpf at idle, wierd shit seeing 1500 degree EGTs just sitting there.
Wet stacking's an issue only if you delete the emissions stuff, and then idle it 'to warm it up' from 30F. Not a texas issue. Even up here, not an issue so long as you hop in and drive the fucker, you don't get heat until 10 miles later, but it's better for the motor than filling the vane turbo with coke.
