Wouldn't that be "grammah", Peter?
It would, but the "h" is silent, just like the silent "t" in "dog".

Silent "t" in dog you say, where would it go?

Anywhere you want, it's silent.

Haven't seen anyone from Mexico attend a Fest yet....
I just came back from Mexico and saw one (that would be "1") TDI, and I looked everywhere. I really thought I'd see more.




They did have some cool vehicles there though. I spoke with a guy who owned a '12 Ford Powerchoke and he said he's had all sorts of problems because the fuel there may or may not be ULSD and it's not labeled. He got a tank of the regular diesel and the truck has problems, the only way he can clean it out is to tow the camper up a large hill to get it hot enough to clean out.

I am currently in Mexico and can say that the only ultra low sulfur diesel in Mexico are the Pemexes that have an UBA (ultra bajo asufre) notice on their signs. They also say Pemex Premium Diesel with the UBA underneath. There are none on their highway 15 from Nogales to Hermosillo. Any diesel from a Pemex that doesn't have that notice is regular high sulfur diesel. I tried to post a pic but everyone in Kino Bay is online right now and the internet here comes in on a single phone line...Mark

We are working with Eric on his Wisconsin proposal. Fred and I have a phone call with the hotel owner on Thursday evening to discuss the event in more detail.

You should all see a survey in your e-mail inboxes this week polling your opinion on several subjects related to TDIClub, TDIFest, Volkswagen, and Dieselgate. Fred wants to get some feedback from members and TDIFest attendees to determine how Dieselgate has affected the community and member participation, if at all.

If things go well with the hotel and the survey results are satisfactory, I think we will be proceeding. Please take a moment to fill out the survey when you receive it.

Smart move on the organizers' part to put it out of the way over in Southie at the Mass port facility. They tried it here in Baltimore a few years back, but the course went through the downtown/Inner Harbor area. It was a MAJOR cluster f***.
