    2002 MK4 VW Jetta TDI manual

    No rust on the car- always garaged. There's a few small dings, scratches, but nothing major. The clear coat on the grille is beginning to peal. There are two small tears in the driver's side seat, one I covered with a small piece of duct tape which is a good match since the interior is gray...

    2002 MK4 VW Jetta TDI manual

    34MPG what to do

    I had a 2001 Jetta automatic and got about the same mpg. I sold it and bought a 2002 manual. I did the adaptation advance- much better. I know there is some controversy about it but it's worked well for me. http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=53139&highlight=adaptation+advance You...

    ConocoPhillips vs Mobil ULSD

    I also had my sunroof vent open and windows half way down for the leg up to Michigan. I'm wondering if that could have penalized me 3.3 mpg?

    ConocoPhillips vs Mobil ULSD

    I filled up at ConocoPhillips in St. Louis for my 651 mile road trip to northern Michigan, averaging 47.5 mpg running @ 75 mph, no a/c. I filled up at Mobil for the ride home, averaging 50.8 mpg running @ 75 mph, same route. The only difference was the air temp was about 10 degrees warmer...

    Old Navy's Fall '10 GTG

    Hi Walt, I have a Pela oil extractor 6000 http://www.pelaproducts.com/ . It holds six liters so if my memory serves me correctly we may have to empty it out twice to get all the oil out of the Benz. I used to have a 300D Turbo which held 9 quarts. Chuck
