Nice, just found this thread.

I seen a TDI Cluber on Rt.51 at a getgo,filling up right next to me.
I was in the porcelain blue Mk3 Jetta if your reading this.

So were are you seeing the cheapest Diesel in the burgh?
Just filled up for 2.89 right off lebonon church Rd.
Right before the red light at the Bettis plant going towards dravosburgh/mckeesport
This is a stupid question but Does diesel usually look greenish and clear with bubbles? This was probably the 3rd time I filled up and never noticed. I swore the last time I filled up it was black and opaque but never really paid attention to it.

I've usually seen a real light green tint and yes there are plenty of bubbles.

Also, I filled up in Fox Chapel Wed and it was 2.85.

The bubbles "foam" is what makes it difficult to top off. I usually angle the nozzle to help prevent the bubbles. This makes it easier to consistantly top off, especially if you did the ventectomy.

Just wanted to stop on and say hello.

In one week I go pick up my brand new Black/Anthracite, Option 1 06.5 Jetta TDI. I can't wait.

I've spent about 2 weeks going through the site, and trying to absorb as much info as I can... I'm sure I'll be referencing a lot of things on here soon.
