Default Blue Eyes is gone

I have not been reading the TDI forum for a few months, but someone replied to one of my one messages about MPG.

I lost my daughter Katie & my 98 NB TDI Blue Eyes in a Christmas day accident. I miss them both dearly. I am now driving Katie's 99 NB GLS 2.0L Automatic.

For the record Blue Eyes did all he could, I survived with minor injuries. Katie fell asleep at the wheel and hit a callbox pole on I-10 mile marker 148 West. The pole snapped at the base and crushed the roof of the NB. She died instantly, the car then rolled 5 times. I crawled out with minor cuts and bruises.

I doubt I spend any time in the forum in the future, since I no longer have a TDI. I hope my next NB will be a hybrid, I need 100 mpg+.
