What's the difference?
They both run on diesel.
They both kick butt.

Anyways back to the topic -
#5 - How far back is it heated? I had a problem at 40 below on my previous diesel VW that was only solved by kerosene. I filled up in a warm area and drove to the cold area, but only used about a gallon of the warm area D2.
#6 - if it's labeled ULSD shouldn't trucker fuel be fine? As long as you can get it in.
#15 (maybe) - could you add the links to the two excellent break-in procedures on this board in here.

Great thread and post Dr. D.

Yep, its the same fuel. I was only talking about nozzles.

I did consider doing that, but two issues stayed my hand: (1) Its not an '09-specific issue, and (2) I don't personally believe in the usefulness of special break-in driving procedures. (Just IMHO...no one need tell me how wrong I am, I already know that almost nobody agrees with me here; I'm good with that).

This may be common knowledge or not, but how well does the factory fuel filter in this new CRD 2.0L filter particles down to?

This has been a big problem with the 3rd Gen Dodge Ram Common Rail systems. Dodge used a 10 micron at first and people were getting failing injectors with bad batches of fuel, then they switched to using 7 micron filters. Being that I want to keep my high pressure pump, rail, and injectors as clean and particle free as possible, I also run an aux. 2 micron filter after the 7 micron stock one.

I hope that VW takes filtering on a high pressure common rail system seriously. Small particles 5-10microns in size can cause serious damage when fired at 20-29,000psi through modern injectors over time. I also don't want to leave the fate of my engine in the hands of the fuel distributors and gas stations, with their sometimes sub-par filtering. It is the same problem experienced in any high pressure hydraulic system.

Does anyone know about the new fuel filters on this new engine?

Thanks,

Chris

Yes the midline CECM does not support fogs, but It can support HID Xenon headlights, just not in the 100% factory way. It supports the low beams in HID, but not the highs in HID. ie: you don't get to use the HID high beams, your highs would be the H7 halogen beams. The highline CECM allows full function of the xenon Low & Highs, and you can also enable flash to pass, and run all 4 high beams if you wish .

Thanks for the clarification. That's good to know. Now that I've got the parking light option working in the midline CECM, I think I'm going to abandon my plans to upgrade the CECM and just put in a relay for the fogs. It's good to know that the HIDs will work for low-beams as well.

I would guess its too early to tell...hardly anyone has over 12K miles on a 2.0 L CR in the U.S.

That said, I just changed the fuel filter during my first oil change, at 8K mi (I know, I know, waaay earlier than the service schedule calls for...I've just always been in the habit of changing the fuel filter with every oil change on diesels. It sure can't hurt). It was dirty, but not god-awful. So it appears to be doing something. That's not a very good answer to your question -- I'm just sayin'.

Can someone post a pic of this "amp under the drivers seat"? Or, does anyone know definatively if the highline in Canada has it?

Also, IF one had a fold flat passenger seat, where would the latch be to release the seat to go flat?


Cheers!

I would suggest making this thread a sticky, at least while people are buying '09s. It would already have avoided several new threads and posts if people were reading it.

indicate it's filtering more?
I'd be more concerned about a clean filter.
