Just got back from Fargo. Man I just made it out in the nick of time too. Blizzard chased me all the way to Omaha. The roads were being closed behind me.

Anyhow, loving the new 09 TDI, and it's starting to really run now with some miles on it.

I drove it a bit hard on this trip as I was short on time so I couldn't drive like a geezer. But the mileage is about 4-5% better than my 06 is with the new engine / trans. My recently restored 2002 TDI Jetta std trans will do 56 mpg.

I just got an 09 SportWagen TDI also so I'll be reporting on that car soon.

You've got an 02, 06, 09 sedan and an 09 JSW? I'm confused!

53 mpg = pretty darn good!
