    1.9 TDI in a '93 Eurovan?

    VW sold a Eurovan in Canda w/a 2.4L 5 cyl NA diesel. Economical but slow, I've been told. '93 diesel Canadian spec Eurovans can be imported relatively easily (compared to most non-US vehicles), but there was also a 95-97 commercial van diesel w/a different engine that is NOT import-friendly...

    Considering '02 Jetta GL w/ 15K

    Congrats!! I'm 2 weeks into my '01 Jetta 5-speed and loving it. The other aspect that I don't think has been mentioned in this thread was my #1 reason for buying a diesel--biodiesel. That plus the MPG and the longevity added up to being able to do something that could massively lower my...

    Check engine light; cold temps, 2nd day w/TDI!

    Yeah; you can't even buy B99 these days. The highest I've seen locally is B50, which most people report should work fine in our relatively mild NW winters. I'll check w/Justin on the light--hopefully nothing major!

    bad tdi owner, lying guy!!

    But... With additional batteries, a plug-in Prius can get upwards of twice the MPG; 100+. With a diesel instead of gasoline powerplant, a conventional hybrid could easily get >75 MPG. (I think Daimler's testing a hybrid Sprinter...yum! :D) Make a diesel-hybrid that plugs in, you could be...

    A Powerful Start: The New Touareg V6 Tdi In A Severe Test As A Service Vehicle In The

    Please, somehow, we have to convince VW and others that the US would like a V6 TDI as much as the rest of the world, and things like a V10 (or the gas V6 in the Eurovan/T4--deemed "too thirsty" for the rest of the world) are simply overkill. 'Course, having a oil-industry plaything for a...

    A3/B4 crash safety?

    So, in doing my due diligence in trying to figure out the best TDI for me and the fan-damily, I start to look into the question of safety. The answers I'm finding are not good! B4: "Poor" A3: "Marginal"...
