If you are near Woodbury, I have a Vag-com.

agh, no, i didn't know about that - i just looked it up online, that's right near here. bad scene.

as for marvel mystery oil: no no no....

use an approved diesel additive like stanadyne performance formula (my preference) or diesel kleen, redline, amongst others...

fireboy - noticed you didn't get service records for the previous oil changes and have a PD -- can you get these from the dealer? i would think they should be able to provide you with them, or at least last time of oil change or previous owner you could contact... you really want to make sure you're running 505.01 (or better like 506.01)

edit - not sure exactly what damage could occur as i'm not knowledgeable enough about the real guts of it all... but as far as i can tell, it is not good!

Hey guys! wondering if any of you could help me out with a VAG-COM in the near future. I was driving my car and got it to go into limp mode. (with my RC2 under full throttle for 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears - in 4th there was a bit of white smoke then when I got to 5th there was no power at all... I thought I smoked the turbo, but after shutting the car off and back on again - it was back to normal. I talked to Jeff @RC and he wanted me to check the codes in the VAG-COM to let me know what happened.)

anyhow, I'm also lookin at getting a popup camper for my wife's Passat for some fun this spring/summer/fall. Any other TDI'ers campers??

there is a lot of debate going on about how much tongue weight and trailer weight the passat can handle.

Anyhow, if you can help me with the VAG - please PM or e-mail me. thanks a bunch guys!

Anyone have a new Vag-Com with Hex+CAN for the new '05.5/'06 Jetta?
There are several comfort settings I'd like to change.

I work in Fridley, but live north of North Branch - if anyone is within a 30 mi. radius of either location, that'd be golden!

I wasn't showin off to anyone but myself... just out having FUN if you know what I mean. You know how it is when a jammin song comes on the radio and ya just gotta kick up some dust. (ok, maybe you don't if you are shooting for 58MPG)

I'm a 33-38MPG man in day to day driving with my 5-speed manual PD100 Jetta. I've gotten as high at 42MPG on the trip home from the TDIFest. I kept a steady 75MPH the whole way home - no stops - fuel station to fuel station and it was exactly 42MPG. Now keep in mind I only had about 3000 miles on the car at the time, but my wifes Passat following me got the EXACT same 42MPG - and her's is the 134PD motor with tiptronic auto trans. hmmm?

Saw one Passat Wagon TDI on my trip to the cities today, then told one guy about the TDI Club at the dealer (after my car wash). 100 miles today, 200 miles tomorrow.
Actually, I think using the Oakdale Fleet Farm would be a better idea - they tend to have lower fuel prices than you would normally see in WI.

FWIW, I got to exit 71 on the Ohio Turnpike on one tank back in June, without the fuel light coming on, and this was pre-506.01.

The route I would take is I-94 to Madison, then I-90 to the Tri-state, down the Tri-state to I-80, join up with the Indiana Toll Road, then take the turnpikes the rest of the way.

I was thinking about a convoy which would gather in northwestern Indiana about 5am CDT on the Thursday and arriving at King of Prussia about 8pm EDT, assuming the hotel deal is a go for the Thursday night. I'm thinking mandatory fill at the Fleet Farm and mandatory fill just before getting of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The stops I would use would be:

1. Black River Falls, WI
2. Portage, WI
3. Belvidere, IL
4. Northwestern Indiana (fill tanks for long part of run, 700 miles in 16 gallons is 43.75 mpg, 15 gallons would be 46.67 mpg)
5. Fremont, IN (Indiana Toll Road, just east of I-69)
6. Sandusky, OH
7. Youngstown, OH
8. Somerset, PA
9. Highspire, PA (near Harrisburg)

We would use the service area just before the Valley Forge exit as the ending point of the mileage competition.
