@R.. is right: anything that can be confirmed through experimentation always wins.

comment Filling diesel vehicles - Vent trick
It's not clear why this is something that you'd want to do. You're trying to increase the distance between fuel stops? If so, this sounds like a lot of work to defeat a venting system when you could get the same effect by driving slower and / or with more relaxed starts from stoplights.

Welcome to the site. The issues of shifting to neutral and engine braking have been discussed at length. Please consider some of the following: mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/678/57, mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/3600/57, mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/4340/57 and mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/816/57.

comment Should one fit the least-worn tires to the rear wheels?
@mac, yes, following the recommended rotation procedure is important and is specific to the configuration of the vehicle. For example, my AWD car permits rotation front and back but not side to side (so my left tires will always stay on the left). Rotation will mitigate many uneven wear situations but not prevent them.

comment Can I use lower octane fuel at high elevation?
The original finding was from the American Petroleum Institute, not an objective source. Our guidance on the site is to rely on your owner's manual - see the related questions on the right for more information.

comment Really high idle after tightening spark plugs
Did you do a full ECU reset after all of this work? There's usually a recommended many second procedure that will drain all residual charges and return the ECU to a base state.

@ravloony, you should answer your own question below - that will complete the circuit for people who go searching for similar problems (rather than forcing them to read in the comments)
