I imagine its like a stage 1 chiptune. yes its working harder than it was, and it is giving you a reward (faster cooling of the cavernous interior) for its extra effort but its not working so hard as to be much of a worry. I know from my experience from the ALH, that running a vnt-15 at 21psi isnt a good thing to do, but it will run all day long at 17. this is kinda like that for me in my thinking.

Especially since this is a factory installed option, just not turned on for my region, I will lose exactly zero sleep over this mod. my MFA mileage was unchanged this morning from any previous experiences so I am hopeful to not see any mileage hits, but even if I do, i'd rather be comfortable.

A bottle of Startron diesel additive works as they have a nice long neck. Buy one bottle and then refill with additive of your choice once empty.

I like the 32 oz. bottle as it lasts for months.

Kind of shocked you went for a new ride but then one may want a change after many years/miles with an A4. Biggest adjustment for me going from A4 to NMS Passat was how quiet the NMS is! Know you'll do fine with Schmutz!

thanks. in regards to your last assertion, I say amen.

the past 4 days, between all the cars we own, only my wife's has working AC. The cars she lets me drive should be registered as torture devices on days like the past few we've had.

I would trade in half my fuel economy for some cold air right now. lol.

My 2016 RR came with an adapter that allow "gas size" nozzles on diesel pumps to be used. You can stop by my place and borrow it for a few seconds to add additive. You might also consider getting one of these adapters. I had to use it in Jacksonville, NC.
