    I'm happy with my 2k5 Passat TDI and my wife has the GLX wagon. She want to keep it until Audi offers a A6 Avant TDI. We looked at the VW Tourag a few years ago, but doesn't want a SUV just a S/W

    Stories when filling up at "gasoline station"

    Biodiesel Prices & Locations By State/province

    Derek, I just purchase 10 gal of BD then add 2 gal when I do a fill up of around 15 gal. That means I figure a mix of around B10 or something close. VW allows B5 but is working with ADM and would increase to B20 so I don't think that I'm messing with my warranty to much. Robert Hemet
