Default TDIClub & Register.COM?

I have been getting re-directed to some sort of Register.COM version of TDICLUB.COM Register.Com that seems to indicate some sort of upcoming change/consolidation ??????

Looks like VW changed the link. I updated the link in the 1st post.

Yep, gasbuddy works great. My Passat has the travellink but it can't be trusted. I would have rather had a 4 year free subscription to the music then the useless weather and fuel prices that's never right.

Am on my third TDI! Original = 2005.5 Jetta Stick--averaged 55 mpg on highway and around 35 mpg in town. Now have 2012 Passat and 2013 Beetle Convertible. Passat gets about 38 mpg on highway and 30 mpg in town. Beetle is too new but looks like 30 mpg in town. Am looking for biodiesel dealers in or very near Manassas. VA. Have a great TDI day!

I'm sure the Passat will improve from that. Most people are getting mid 40s with no issues.

Remember about biodiesel: the Passat and Beetle can't use more than 5% (B5) per VW. However, a number of people have used B20 by watching their oil level and condition carefully. Don't even think about using higher than B20. The common-rail TDIs will have all kinds of issues, and VW will not cover any engine issues if you do.

I think about seven VW's have lurked in my garage over the years.

Four have been diesels. It all started with a bug, then a Porsche 914 (really a VW with a Porsche 5-speed transmission) then a Karmann Ghia.

The diesel input began with a brand new 1981 Rabbit 5M. A turbocharged Quantum 5M followed.

Recently I sold my 1982 Rabbit Diesel PU 5M after 27 years and 300,000 miles.

The restoration guy turned it (after paint/upholstery et al upgrades) and pocketed $12,000 less his expenses.

He's a nice guy and the little trucklet looked great.

Enter the TDI. This sailor has ab-so-lutely zero buyer's remorse
