    Which Receiver Hitch for Bike Rack?

    Whichever one you get add the option of wiring to trailer lights. You never know. I installed mine and this allowed me to pull a U Haul enclosed trailer.

    TDI Used Oil Lab Analyses Results & Discussions

    I've read from BITOG that Blackstne doesn't measure fuel dilution accurately. The only factor here that I can gather is the routine use of Stanadyne with every fill of my fuel tank.

    Venting in a MKVII

    I cannot remember where I read it but letting the fuel tank run down to near "0" miles SUPPOSEDLY is not good for the lift pump. I guess the pump has to work extra hard to bring the fuel to the front?

    CP3 pump install - it’s installed

    Searched. Most are refurbished. Different tolerances after refurb? Any place that sells an entire pump brand new? Saw few vendors selling a "core". If there is a "core" is there a "shell" or "housing"?
