There you go Chet! The fuel milage should average out pretty well between the two.

How are those diesels doing in the winter ?? Any issues with the diesel gelling up ??

On the Peterbilt I drive (Cat C-15) if the temp starts getting down into the low 20's I treat the fuel because froze up big rigs are no fun at all..  :-\

No issues for me, but I live in the Pacific Northwet, where it's green, and wet.  I'll know more when I finish my retirement place and move to the dry side of the state.

Pricing on the Passat was funny business. The lowest prices I am seeing are just a hair under $25,100. I'll keep picking at them.

I've never had any issues with my Jetta and gelling fuel. I don't use any additives either. The coldest we've had around here since we got the car was around minus 5F. The station where I fill up 99.9% of the time has D2, I try to avoid using any biodiesel if I can help it.

Some parts of the car look great but I can't get past the looks of the rear wheel covers. I just showed it to my wife and she said, "yuck, but if it gets 261 mpg she could live with it."

Put a deposit on a black Ivory Passat to match the black Ivory C-14 I just bought. I found out the Passat feels more powerful because it uses urea fluid in the exhaust system instead of chokink the power in the catalytic converter systems the Jetta, Beetle, and Golf use. I was wondering why those didn't use the fluid.

Most people don't want to add any fluid to vehicle much less fuel, so when urea injection gets tossed into the equation...........

$15-$20 every 10,000 miles or so seems pretty simple. And VW does it for the first 36,000 miles.

So let me get this straight, cause I'm easily confused.   Urea is the main ingredient in pi**.   So are you guys pi**ing in your cars now?  Please tell me I'm wrong before I call 911 to come get me as I've fallen into hysterical laughter and can't get up.... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
Too late, methinks.

$15-$20 every 10,000 miles or so seems pretty simple. And VW does it for the first 36,000 miles.


And you're paying someone to **** in your car?  This is getting good.  Why do I have this mental picture of a VW Tech standing on the hood pissing in a Passat?  And this makes it more powerful?  My God, humor doesn't get any better than this.

And all ya'll have been keeping this to yourselves!  And I haven't even started drinking yet...

I'm going to have to strip this stuff out and send it to the 'Funny' board...  I'm laughing so hard now I'm getting a headache.
