Dweisel,
Does this list indicate member's home states or where the failures happened? Knowing where the failures happened, if away from home in a different state, might be helpful, if that info is available.

And they say California has superior fuel. Yet we are #1 on the list.

Then again, How many of these were due to misfuelling? Of course the owner would never fess up to that.

I know what you're saying.
Its just the State listed on their username.It would be impossible to figure out where everyone had their failure and where they bought fuel.So, the username state was used.
I guess I would have to change my State of failure to OH because all our fuel is bought in Ohio. Gee, that makes me feel a whole lot better. NO HPFP failures from WV. Go Mountaineers!

There will be all kinds of assumptions made from this list. Too many unknown factors to consider to draw anykind of conclusions.

I think four states have biodiesel mandates (2% typically): Oregon, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Washington. Some of these have come on stream recently.

It appears that the only failures in biodiesel mandate states are two in Oregon. The 2009 was driven before the biodiesel mandate, unless all fuel was purchased in Portland. The 2010 may have been purchased about the time of the biodiesel mandate. I would be interested in where the 2010 Washington TDI was typically fueled.

Link to site listing biodiesel mandate states: http://www.truckline.com/AdvIssues/E...ary%202010.pdf

One could do some sort of statistical test (Chi squared?) to see whether the non-biodiesel states are significantly overrepresented. If we knew the distribution of members/new TDIs by state, that would help. Surrogate measures would by state populations or by sales per state if available.

I bet the relative frequency of failures in biodiesel states is much lower than in other states. The real value of biodiesel would be underestimated because the mandates have come in only recently, and cars in biodiesel states may have been fueled at least occasionally outside the state.

California on its own is a huuuge car market. I would think the number of failures in CA has more to do with a very large number of cars sold there. Perhaps the proportion of failures relative to sales isn't much different.

Default If you have a HPFP Failure you should report it to NHTSA

Here is the link to the NHTSA website to report a complaint. There is strength in numbers and letting the NHTSA know there are more than the 7 instances mentioned in the press might help to get VW to acknowledge the issue.

I am no expert but here it a thought...
From my understanding, we import diesel from other countries that would seem plausible that it is used along the coastal areas. I know I had a customer from Kansas that had all kinds of problems with fuel in his new Peterbilt when he fueled up in Houston. From the chart, there are no failures in the actual midwest/high plains where this imported fuel is not reaching. This also matches what the largest seller in the KC area told me last week and that was that they had had no HPFP failures come through their shop. Maybe I am just "willing" my '09 Jetta to avoid any problems.

California is a huge state, probably with more TDIs and more stations which makes the probability of some contaminated fuel being purchased more likely. Just numbers.

Might be interesting to compare this list with an 09/10 TDI sales by state list. Failure ratios by state might provide some insight into regional fuel quality.

32 names on the list. That is a very small percentage out of the cars sold.

I wonder what percentage of cars had a failure of HPFP in relation of car sold in the US. And I am not talkign about pumps which failed due to someone fueling up with gasoline.

I wonder how many people came to this website BECAUSE of their HPFP failure. That might skew the numbers too.

I keep hearing numbers thrown out like 1%, etc. I think they're all conjecture.
