I know the normal shutdown involves shutting off power to the ECU by shutting off both batteries and the alternator. But I also read that if the fuel pumps are shut off that the engine will also stop. I haven’t seen any warnings about only shutting off the fuel pumps so I thought I’d ask if there were any reason to not use that method to normally shut down the engine? I don’t know if maybe that would cause any cavitation or other potential issues with the high-pressure fuel pump? Just thinking that shutting the fuel pumps off might be more akin to something like pulling the mixture to lean-cutoff or maybe have a benefit like de-pressurizing the fuel lines at shutdown.
