    Fuel filter clamp part number

    I need to know the part number for the clamps on the fuel filter. They ate the spring loaded type. One of mine was way too weak. If there is a suitable substitute that would be okay too. I though about radiator clamps but did not think that to be a good replacement. I heard zip ties can be...

    b20 for cleaning

    I am ccv'ed and stealth egr'ed. Was wondering if running B20 every once in a while would be good as a preventative (intake) cleaning measure? Also is B20 higher cetane than regular fuel. Of course there is no sticker on the pump. We just got B20 here so I figured I would ask these questions.

    Has anyone seen a mod or circuit to make the upper (third) brake light flash for a few seconds before going solid? I saw this on a motorcycle once and thought it was a great safety feature.

    TOYS R Us Beetle/Microbus

    I just took my nephew to his favorite store, Toys R Us. My niece has a Barbie New Beetle. Of course, it is a TDI. But now I see there is a VW Microbus too. What gives? Are kids that hip to VW's? Or was it just to hard for Ken to get fresh with Barbie in the back of the Beetle?

    Impex air filter

    I just noticed that Impex has the air filter for a TDI for $12. I assume this is not a factory VW one right? I want to make sure this is not one that does not fit right. Anyone use this on their TDI? I do not want to ruin a MAF.

    Amoco gone...Tesoro in...

    All of my local Amoco stations here are being changed to Tesoro stations. Apparently Tesoro (A Salt Lake City refinery) has bought them out. I do not know if it is just a local thing or what. Of course Cetane stickers are no where to be found. Anyone know if this is good fuel?
