Thumbs up liquid (gas) cools the fuel pump...

The reason you don't rev an engine without a load is because it revs and drops rpm's way faster than it was designed. The load forces the engine to accelerate/decelorate slower. So it's more like a sudden acceleration and stopping causing the added stress.
I'm also sure there is also an issue with oil and coolant not being able to lubricate/cool critical engine components fast enough to keep up with the unloaded revving.
Point well taken, but it's hard to believe that any liquid here in Arizona cools anything! :nogrinner
