  1. TDI and Diesel Forum
    Earlier this year I purchased a low-millage 2013 U.S. Passat TDI and over 5,000 miles the best-calculated MPG I have seen from a full Tank of many different brands of Diesel is 29 MPG average. The worst in a few weeks of mostly City driving was 19 MPG from one particular fill-up. The Vehicle has...
  2. TDI and Diesel Forum
    Hello, I used to rely on my (now ex) boyfriend to help me with auto maintenance so I don't have to pay a fortune for labor and materials at a shop. I generally perform my own oil changes and have some mechanical aptitude, and wanted to see what tips/tricks/advice any of you have for me to...

  6. New Beetle & New Beetle Convertible
    Alright long story short I didn’t prime my fuel filter. Why isn’t necessary because this time I didn’t and now my beetle sounds like a damn 1950s John Deere tractor starting up in winter time. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I did pressurize from the fuel cap and fill the filter...
  7. New Beetle & New Beetle Convertible
    Alright I’ve changed my fuel filter a few times and I’ve always primed it with Diesel. Just earlier today I changed it again and the dude I was with ensured me I didn’t need to. I listened air locked my beetle, but cracked opened the injectors and blow with an air compressor from my fuel cap...

    A close friend with a kid in Cub Scouts recently let me in on a little secret. Pinewood Derbies can be serious business.

    Since last week when we attended the R18 test at Sebring Raceway following the running of the 12 Hours, we've been doing our best to push out as much content as possible. While we're not quite done (expect a written report and more photos), we've now uploaded a 500 pic photo gallery , some...
