    Can I Run 99% in my 2006 Jetta TDI?

    I would run a tank of B99 every month through my 2005.5 just to keep things clean. I just sold the car after not driving it for 9 month. It had 72K when I sold it and ran like a champ. Wife runs it in her 05 Bug once in a while and no problems.

    rough idle, 5-spd

    I noticed if I ran a little bio it would smooth out, and if I reved it up it would come back ok.

    What's wrong with diesel price?

    I am convinced that the higher diesel prices are to subsidise lower gas prices. Diesel use to be lower until gas prices went way up and people started to complain. Squeaky wheel gets the grease and the media only covers gas not the evil diesel.

    Intake cleaning on A5/MkV?

    Actually today I am at 61,897 the car is 13 months old. I have the original tires (never been rotated) and the brakes are still going strong. Change the oil every 10K the fuel filter every 25K and 2 sets of wipers. I run 1-2 tanks of bio/month (fill 3 tanks/week) and drive it like I stole it. :D

    Emissions workshop light P2112

    I have a 2005.5 Jetta TDI Pkg 1 with 51K ( ya just out of warranty) Last week I had the emissions workshop light come on while running down the highway.

    PD engines running B100

    I have a 05.5 and am just turning 50K the car is almost a year old. I run 2 tanks of B99 every month just to keep things cleaned out and have had no problems. My PD seems to really like the bio, the first tank of regular fuel after the bio seems to pick up 2-3mpg.

    My 2006 is very hard to drive straight

    I had the same problem when mine was new, the steering wheel was also off center just a tad. The car would wander all over the place and seemed like it just never knew where it wanted to go. I took it back to the dealer to have the wheel straightened, when it came back the wheel was straight...

    Poor FM reception??

    The metal in the tint film kills the reception, you can get a non-metal film but it doesn't last as long. I was looking for an external antenna but couldn't find one.
