You change lanes to get in front of semis so they can see your TDIClub "Yes, it's a diesel" license plate frame.

Not only do you look at arse end of every VW for a TDI badge, but now you've started looking at every Chevy, Ford and Dodge pickup you see to see if it is a Duramax/PowerStroke/Cummins !

6. I love the looks you get when you pick up the green
hose at the fuel pump.

Be careful if you ever come to the UK, green are unleaded and black are diesel over here

...you like the smell of Diesel exahaust so much that you constantly have a black ring around your mouth from taking bong hits off the tail pipe...

...you smell your exhaust because it reminds you of working over a deep fryer. Non-Bio TDI'ers excluded from this one.

You see a sign that says "Polo Diesel", pull a U-turn across 4 lanes of traffic, and are disappointed to find out it's a clothing shop.

Yup! So, so true. Last night my son told me, in re. his toy trucks, planes, LEGO robots, etc. etc.: "They all have Diesel engines."

The little German percolator makes another convert.

...You cheered the day you became a "veteran" member of the TDIClub.

...You check TDIClub member numbers and are impressed by low ones. You think, "real" diesel people.

...You put notes on TDIs that park in your neighborhood saying "Hi from Jetter and Sprinta from the TDIClub."

..when you carry around TDI Club.com Business Cards at work just waiting for the opportunity to hand them out or place them on a parked TDI.

You know when you've gone to work and by memory have recited at least 50 of these "You know you're obsessed" lines by memory laughing at yourself while everyone else just gets more and more irritated.
