    Design Flaw Leaks?? What does "limited warranty" mean? How long does a "bumper to bumper" warranty last? Will insurance cover a $20,000 repair?

    Which Receiver Hitch for Bike Rack?

    Whichever one you get add the option of wiring to trailer lights. You never know. I installed mine and this allowed me to pull a U Haul enclosed trailer.

    Venting in a MKVII

    I cannot remember where I read it but letting the fuel tank run down to near "0" miles SUPPOSEDLY is not good for the lift pump. I guess the pump has to work extra hard to bring the fuel to the front?

    CP3 pump install - it’s installed
