    Bay Area belt change

    I don't need a new belt yet but would be willing to pay for other basic services and/or a general health check on the 7th or 8th (cant make this weekend).

    Possible SF Bay Area GTG??????

    I'd like to meet some local TDIers so I'd be in. I see a TDI on the road maybe once a month with any luck.

    non-user fuel mileage variables

    Tony, the weather here (Oakland, CA) is moderate, so I only use the AC if there's a heat wave, which has only happened twice this summer. The needle on the temperature guage always rises to dead center (can't remember what temp that is). This car doesn't have a snow screen, I checked for one...

    non-user fuel mileage variables

    So my 2004 Golf TDI 5 speed manual gets poor fuel mileage. I drive for good mileage-with the occasional burst to clear out the cobwebs. I'd say on average 60% of driving is city with the rest freeway. And without having my fuel log in front of me, the overall MPG is probably about 33-34. I've...

    04 pd coolant loss

    Just thought I'd add myself to the list.

    My new Golf's low mpg.

    Re: My new Golf\'s low mpg. Thanks for the responses so far, already very helpful. For the record my golf is also a 5-speed manual. I guess I need to go fill 'er up in order to calculate my mpg instead of using tank capacity and the fuel gauge--what was I thinking! I've also done some research...

    My new Golf's low mpg.

    My new Golf\'s low mpg. So I recently bought a CPO 2004 Golf TDI with 27000 on the odometer (wish I had found this website sooner). One of the biggest reasons for choosing a TDI was of course the great gas mileage--but where is it? Unfortunately, it doesn't have the multi-function display, so I...
