Wow!!!!!!!!! Never had a situation where the station didn't have a nozzle that would fit through that protection device. If you have to use the funnel (which I do carry in my trunk) you would be needing fuel like right now with no other choice as there are many more stations with appropriate nozzles. I think the protection it offers far outweighs the hate for it that is preached on this forum. Also if you remove it and introduce gasoline into the car and it fails your on your own. What's the big deal?

I think the 'hate' comes from the fact that a lot of people could not fuel up at the place(s) they had been fueling up prior to its installation.

I do not speak from experience myself, nor have I had anyone come in here at our shop with any issues that I was told about.

The couple CR TDIs I have fueled up had no problems.

Speaking of failsafe devices, does anyone still make a filter to put just downstream of the HPFP and catch the shrapnel? If not, can such a thing be Gomered up.

Sounds like "a lot of people" fed you a line of BS.

Is there any year/model that is less likely to have the HPFP grenade? This has probably been covered, but I have not kept up with it. Thanks.

I believe the extended warranty was only for 2009-2012, which implies the 2013-2014 models were less plagued. Last I read the 2015s haven't been on the road in sufficient numbers or long enough to generate accurate statistics, but the mood seems to be that they'll likely fall on the probably not side of things. There have been numerous revisions, even for the earlier models. It's not entirely clear that an older or newer pump is more/less problematic. I'm not sure how much energy you want to devote to this concern. I've had a 2012 with the extended warranty, which had just expired about 5K miles before I turned it in. I'm in a 2015 with 80K and it still has a ways to go under warranty.

Any TDI that was fixed under the DieselGate recall, is covered under the extended emissions warranty. That includes the 2013-2015s.

Before dieselgate ever happened 2009-2012 TDIs had an HPFP extended warranty to 120,000. The 2012 with an extended warranty that expired I referred to in my second to last sentence couldn't have been covered under the dieselgate recall since it a) expired and b) was "turned in" so that should have been clear I wasn't referring to the dieselgate extended warranty.

IMHO, the reason the extended warranty only covered the 09-12 models years was because those were the years included in the NHTSA investigation. I think I was between the two warranties for a few months and about 12,000 miles. I still have got another 3+ for the hpfp to go out on VWs dime.
