    Fuel Filter Change + Power Service fluid

    Just open the top of the canister, pull the old filter out, drop in the new one. Button it up and move on. Don't make this complicated. That is my method used on both a 2010 Sportwagen and my current Passat. Don't make a mountain out of a molehill. You are overthinking everything. Relax it...

    2006 Passat 2.0T FSI dreaded HPFP

    Big number one the kicker is as you say he had the timing belt replaced...............that engine does not have a timing belt it is all about the timing chain and the worn-out tensioner. All the TSI, FSI engines do it, it is up to you as an educated owner to know about it and have the chain and...

    Can someone explain to me the whole service interval wrench and when to change oil?

    You need to service your car every 10k. Read your owners manual and you will see what needs to be serviced at that time.............very simple just follow the owners manual and everything will be just fine. I do not know why you are confused.

    Plugging the Dpf has nothing to do with it, It's Carbon reside on the injectors and fuel dilution. The problem with the dpf systems is during a dpf regen is when the fuel dilution occurs. So I guess you are right about no dpf ok, but you will still have accessive carbon residue on your injectors.

    Mostly city driving? What kind of MPg you get?

    When I was in Europe all the taxicabs I encountered were diesel. Stop and go city driving. This forum has an attitude that a TDI must be driven on long highway drives. I myself don't buy it. Your car will serve you well in the city and not blow up or fall apart. You just won't see that high mpgs...

    TOP TIER™ Diesel Fuel Brands

    Can you document your better performance & economy? You state that you burn much more non V-Power branded fuel. If you can not it is all placebo based on a ten year old youtube filmed in the UK with UK fuel and produced before your car was even built. I hope Shell sends you a coffee mug and a...

    TOP TIER™ Diesel Fuel Brands

    Well if you feel loads of cetane are a necessary additive why do you only use it every 3-4 tanks? Cetane value is only of benefit to the fuel you are burning at that tank full. It has no carryover value to your other 3-4 tank fulls.

    Disappointed in the lack of rear leg room in the JSW

    Thanks all for the education about sarcasm, no I did not get it. It just sounded like fools with a need to post something. The only advice to the OP is that if the backseat legroom is lacking he should buy a different car, Not come here and complain about it. Nuff said. BTW I got the one with...
