~4000 miles in a year since my wife retired last August and the kids are back in the Charlotte area. Going to have to start thinking about going to a 12 month maintenance program rather than by miles.
Add another 4000. Just turned over 150k miles. going to have to pull the bike rack out of storage and start using the JSW for our bike trips. Upper 30s vs low 20s for the truck.

You can have the pump rebuilt, but it's not a do-it-yourself task. There are a handful of diesel shops that do this. Not cheap, but far cheaper than new pumps these days, which are going obsolete.

NB, 2000, RED(5 Speed conversion) 2015 Golf SE
381,000 Miles on 2000 NB, 5 speed conversion

Edit Apr 29, 2022 - I'm pretty disappointed if I don't get at least 550 miles, if not 600 miles on a tank. My very best was 717 miles on 16.95 gallons
Besides the 5 speed conversion, - RC2 (customized to minimize smoke with ->) , Larger fuel injection Nozzles, 3 inch exhaust from Turbo on back

My 2015 Golf has 117xxx miles

This is my first post here although I was a lurker here years ago. I just remember the forum and decided to join. Not exactly a TDI but my 2012 BMW X5 35d has 145,000 miles. I bought it about 4 years ago, as a one owner at the local BMW dealership.

It's been 6.5 years and I've put 282K km on my old BRM. Right now it's just over 640K km 🙂 Best car I've ever owned.

After averaging around 4000 miles for the last two years, we ended up putting on almost 3000 in July. Ended up taking the JSW to Iowa. Total mileage is now around 154,000. Not bad for a 12 year old car.

Rust is starting to eat at the door handles on the golf as PO didn't take care of it. Winter beater anyway.

236k on a 03 Wagon and almost at 90k on 13 Passat. With covid and work from home not a lot of miles have been put on the wagon, we mainly use the Passat now. According to my fuelly log last time I filled up the wagon was in October, wow I need to take it out for a drive.
239k on 03 Wagon
111k on 13 Passat

Wagon needs more attention. I might just do that and start driving it more. Passat has been good so far, timing belt done at 110k.
