    New to the Forum- Looking to improve my 16 A6 TDI MPG- Help

    I've noticed a 1 to 2mpg improvement using Diesel Kleen cetane boost, but I've only ran it through 2 tanks so I don't have a definite answer if it helps or not yet. The liqui moly super diesel additive has no effect on mileage for me personally, I just used it when it was -10F in the winter to...

    What did you do to your Audi TDI today?

    Was driving home from work today and I heard a rock slam into my window, turns out it was the side window! I didn't even know that was possible. Looked over the dash cam footage because I initially thought someone shot me with a bb gun or thew something at me, but none of the other cars had...

    What did you do to your Audi TDI today?

    Over the weekend, I DIY'd the front bumper with PPF. Shockingly easy to install, until I noticed all the bubbles the next day. Apparently I need to grab a hypodermic needle to pop them. Shouldn't be too hard to find in Seattle lol

    Best mileage during dpf regen?

    I just wanted to give an update to this - it turned out to be a failing dpf and faulty pressure sensors. I'm glad to be back at a solid 37 to 38 mpg around 80mph on not very flat roads and over 40 if I try my best. I was also down on power too but I didn't notice the gradual decrease over time.

    What did you do to your Audi TDI today?

    Yesterday I learned that if you want to clean up 4 liters of oil off your garage floor and have a heart attack with the low oil light, just put the oil filter O ring on the wrong groove! Luckily I did it at 9pm on a Sunday so every auto parts store was closed and I had to bike a few miles in the...

    Dealer playing hardball, are they right?

    I would take it there, however that's gonna be a few day's drive away from me. I found a dealer 2 hours from me that can get me in early next week and guaranteed a loaner. Apparently multiple people have posted reviews that they go out of their way to get service done there instead of the 3...

    Dealer playing hardball, are they right?

    I'm currently dealing with my car in limp mode for a full DPF, did you ever get anything figured out? I can only make it up to 30mph to merge onto the freeway and can barely make it up the giant hill I live on, which is more of a safety issue than I expected. I've contacted audi customer care...

    What did you do to your Audi TDI today?

    I tried to take mine to the dealer for a full DPF causing limp mode. I got the runaround that they don't have loaner cars until August. I talked to audi customer care and tbey said they will talk to my dealer on Monday when I take it in again. I guess we will find out tomorrow if I can merge...

    Advice for new Q5 owner

    I highly recommend FCP euro for oil, wipers, and air filters. They seem to be the only place that let's you return used oil for a free refund. In Seattle, I can get everything crammed into a medium/large box to their Connecticut location for about $30 using Pirateship. However, you will only see...

    Best mileage during dpf regen?

    Ash has been steady at 0.07L since I got the car a year ago. I've been able to try out different diesels, currently has a tank full of #2 and I get about 2mpg drop when I use Idaho's #1 and #2 blend and 2 more mpg when using pure #1 from Montana. The mileage has been down since August of 21, so...

    Best mileage during dpf regen?

    So in the past few months, I've taken my A6 TDI on quite a few 500+ mile drives and recently my mileage has been about 25% lower than what I used to be getting. I have tried everything in the tips for better mileage and those do help just a little bit, but I would like my old mileage back. For...
