    open recalls- 23o6 and misfueling guard

    I don't understand your caustic reply to my post. What in my post implies that I think I am smarter than everybody or anybody else? Unwarranted replies like yours make me not even want to continue to participate on this forum.

    Poll: Summarize 23O6 Emissions Flash Experience

    I have the "upshifts too soon" DSG transmission, so my perceptions of the 23O6 ECM software update may be different from those with a manual. Since having the 23O6 update in May of 2015 my hand calculated fuel mileage for the same 10 month calendar period (before and after the update) is 0.3...

    open recalls- 23o6 and misfueling guard

    Does your Misfueling Guard have the "spring loaded flap insert"? For reference, another TDIClub member posted the below PDF file for the Misfueling Guard Service Action Campaign: http://pics.tdiclub.com/data/500/20T8_-_Circular.pdf Mine was installed in September of 2013 and at that time the...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    I'm assuming that is because they could not meet EPA/CARB requirements without SCR unless they cheated like VW. I quoted the article without editorializing. It would have been clearer if the author had stated the following (my edit to the original text is in bold): "The SkyActiv-D engines...

    Magnet in fuel filter housing?

    My understanding of the HPFP is that it is comprised of a steel piston in an aluminum bore so a magnet would not help as it does not attract aluminum particles. Forum member "2micron" markets two kits which work together to protect against CP4 HPFP failures and he also has an alternative...

    It is not beyond the realm of possibility that a Judge could issue an order with or without an enforcement clause banning vehicles which are in violation of the Clean Air Act even if it was just to make a point. Whatever Judge Breyer does tomorrow will be interesting as he is a maverick...

    Yakima, WA— Bad Fuel Alert!

    According to this article it was both; gas in diesel tanks and diesel in the gas tanks. http://www.king5.com/story/news/2016/03/18/fred-meyer-fuel-mixup-leaves-dozens-cars-damaged-yakima/81991696/ I wonder how well they clean out their supply tanks after something like this happens.

    HPFP blew on 2014 Sportwagen TDI with 30k miles, VW won't help

    Below is a article from today where a fuel station's diesel supply tank was filled with gasoline. http://www.king5.com/story/news/2016/03/18/fred-meyer-fuel-mixup-leaves-dozens-cars-damaged-yakima/81991696/ I wonder how well they clean out their supply tanks after something like this happens.

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    The portion of the article about VW leaving the US mass market was what concerned me, not the comparison to Toyota. I did not even pay attention to that part as I was still in shock from the headline. I did my own extensive comparison shopping and chose the Golf TDI over other options...

    Help??? Dealership said it failed 2 comtaminated test and says fuel is bad

    Great news. It may have just been that the "Fuel Meter Valve" on the HPFP was malfunctioning occasionally and the VW recommended fix for that issue was to replace the entire HPFP. Thanks for the update.

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    Imagine if you sold a common rail TDI on Craigslist and later on the HPFP failed. After finding out how much it cost to repair, if the buyer happened to be a nutcase they might come after you for revenge.
