      That's a very good test. I got 23 MPG in a Cruze I had for two weeks. There were a few highway miles or it would have been a lot worse. Cars kind of suck in the city.

      This is a nice bit of news. The proposal must contain the effect on performance and fuel economy. The warranty is already known.

      For many of us that chose TDI, the alternative cars aren't that...

      I was noticing out in traffic today that I was never driving where I could not see someone in an electric car. The number of electric cars on the road here is impressive. We're not at 20%, but maybe...

      If you are open to an alternative, RX 450h might be closer to the size and capacity of JSW. Roughly same city mileage. Roughly half the highway mileage. 2010 and 2011 models around the same price as...

      I think it's best to wait. I like the car, and I can keep driving it until the end of the buyback period. The fix, if it ever gets approved by CARB and EPA, probably won't greatly affect mileage or...

      Does this mean I can keep driving my car, without fixing any emissions equipment, until June 2019, still get the same buy-out?

      We'll see what the last day for a buyback is. I'm kind of expecting a 3 year window, so I'd trade in 2019.

      I just found this backup camera for older (1996 and newer I assume) cars. It looks possibly better than OEM cameras.

      Even with all automobile and trucking going to electric power, Germany can wind up using less electric power. Solar and wind plus storage batteries do boost production a littl bit. Bigger than that;...

      In Golf Mk 6, look out for round posts to hold on to the mats vs oval posts.

      My monster mats wore through. Mine see a lot of sand, which is abrasive. I had Weathertech also, which did not mind...

      Batteries are about to become significantly cheaper. Tesla is in a good position to sell as many cars as they can currently make. If I owned a defunct auto plant, I'd be grooming it for sale right...

      You use about 20 % more of more expensive fuel. What savings do you get over TDI?

      The computer does know both distance traveled and fuel used to a great precision. What it displays may be optimistic. But if you want the best measurement, maybe you need to calibrate. Measure both...

      From here, the VW looks pretty good. There are quite a few of them around, possibly outnumbering the Toyota Prius. It doesn't hurt that Diesel fuel here is so much cheaper than unleaded regular, that...

      I'm totally glad I got to drive a light-weight, rear drive, ice, manual transmission, well balanced car. I drove it, even rallied it.

      But no. I embrace a future of autonomous EV. There are strict...

      We haven't seen a lot of information on this. I had understood (from a post many pages back in this thread) that Gen 1 have a pretty good solution, and Gen 2 are problematic. Since the EPA rejected...

      Well, I agree with what you wrote. I think the few years since gen 1 were designed might have given a better LNT (more surface area per unit of weight). And remember, the bar is low. Emissions don't...
