    How does PD injection work?

    After reading someone's post, it got me wondering exactly how does the PD injection system work? So the cam somehow actuates the injector? How does that work together with the signals from the ECU? Does the cam just open and close the supply of fuel and the ECU connections tell the injector...

    Somewhat disappointing MPG for my '05 wagon

    I have a 2005 Jetta Wagon PD that I'm averaging 31 MPG with. We just broke 25k miles. I've always felt that my mileage was kind of low and hoped that it would go up after she broke in, but it hasn't happened. I have relatively light 18" wheels with 225s. I run 100% biodiesel and I have somewhat...
