    The Vanity Plate Thread

    I worked very hard to be able to get this one: (If anyone knows how to embed the pic directly in the post let me know; I'd rather do that.) FYI: They are the only notaries to be appointed for life. The Louisiana...

    Audi A6 TDI ultra Goes the Distance and Sets New World Record

    In an old episode of Top Gear, didn't Clarkson drive a Jaguar diesel from Basile to Blackpool on a single tank of fuel ... getting roughly the same fuel economy?

    Now serving B20 ... do I stop using additive?

    The managers don't know either. When I first bought my Beetle I asked both the clerk and manager at the local truck stop about the bio in the diesel sold; neither knew anything about it, however a there was a diesel delivery in process. So, I went out and asked the delivery driver while he was...

    I want a bigger fuel tank!!!

    Having grown up in Virginia and lived in Delaware and now living in Louisiana, I can honestly say that Pennsyl"tucky" is one of those states that scares the hell out of me and I avoid like the plague.

    What MPG do you get at 70mph?

    My 2013 Beetle Conv. is averaging 39.5mpg which I think is what VW advertises for that model. My best has been 41.7, but that was over New Year's which meant no A/C, ambient temps of about 15F and double-dosing PS White.

    '13 Beetle TDi 'Vert - Not such a good winter car…

    Living in south Louisiana we don't see many nights below 32ºF, however I was in TN right after New Year's and I can say that even though the temperature was 2º when I left the hotel my little Beetle started with no problems and no grumbles although it probably didn't hurt that I double-dosed...

    I'm very familiar with the general area having grown up in Fauquier Co.; when I go back to visit I stay in Warren Co. It's a nice drive right up 81.

    Southern States Diesel - Any Good?

    The only place I found on Google Earth for Mauzy was New Market; but that being said, avoid all Libertys like the plague. Thankfully I live in Louisiana now and don't have to deal with them .. or Sheetz for that matter.

    Why do i like this car so much ?

    Nice. What surprised me about my Beetle is that it has more headroom (and general driver space) than the Cadillac SUV that I traded in.

    Why do i like this car so much ?

    Like you I bought a Beetle Conv. this year; traded my Cadillac SRX to get it. Don't miss most things, but i'm finding I miss the adaptive HID headlights (I really do miss the cornering of the headlights as I turned) and the back-up camera (they really need to add this to the Beetle Conv. as the...

    I Wish my Beetle TDi had a Fender

    I had to hunt all over Florida this spring to find the Beetle I wanted: TDI, convertible, Fender sound & nav. Only found a VERY few statewide.
