I have been using it for the last few months, and got 55 mpg going to TDIfest in Wisconsin. I do remember opening my trunk for you to look while we were in the hotel parking lot.

I remember that, but the question never came up whether this oil could be used in a PD Engine.

I do remember this thread, the real thrust of this is why VW and the dealerships are so slow to update their information to the use of the 506.01 and 507.01,this is my frustration with owning a VW.

For exiting the Pennsylvania Turnpike, it won't matter for the competition, since it will end at a service area.
Perhaps we should put this in a new thread....
I read a couple days ago that the Pennsylvania Turnpike reconfigured that westernmost toll plaza to a $3.00 toll, collected eastbound only. In addition, the Indiana toll is proposed to increase significantly, so the portion of that road that we use will likely run about $7.

So, here's an estimate of the eastbound tolls, based on that guesstimate and payment using cash:
Illinois: $6.60
Indiana: $7.00
Ohio: $8.95
Pennsylvania: $20.00
Total eastbound: $42.55

The Pennsylvania portion is 326 miles. Assuming 40 mpg, the toll eastbound is more than the fuel if the fuel price is less than $2.45 a gallon.

Hey, guys. First post! Figured I'd say hi to the local crowd.

Don't own my TDI yet, but like my signature says, I'm working on getting a
new 2006 Jetta TDI from Luther Westside VW. I live in Edina, work in
Fridley, and go to college in Bloomington... so yeah, the fuel economy will be much appreciated.

Speaking of working in Fridley, CADtechTDi might be a coworker of mine; we do CAD/CAM at my company. I'll have to sweep the parking garage looking for TDI's =)

Well anyway, that's it for my introduction. Now I have to go browse the forum more to get a better understanding of everything that's talked about here.

I am looking for another driver to split the drive from the Minneapolis area to TDIfest. It will be in my car. If interested, please PM me.

Default Timing belt tools

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anybody has the tools to replace the timing belt? I can do it myself buy don't think I want to spend the $300+ on the various VW specific tools I need to do the job. I just did my 70k change and will probably do it relatively soon as I commute from Elk River to St Cloud every day (7d/wk).

Also, KomarekTDI, you should check the spelling of your employer. How is it working at the new plant? NVH Engineer? Where'd you go to school? later

Nick

Actually, you may want to check with Deafbug; he is in Maple Grove.
