      ltlebug -

      The mpg on one tank doesn't mean anything. A trend is necessary to really see if the additives work and to average out driving style, fuel quality variation, etc. Almost everytime I put...

      That's complete BS with Gumout Regane advertising it can clean the valves when by design the injectors are located in the combustion chambers. Unless the additive is applied onto the valves by other...

      Ding Ding Ding ^^^

      FI additives will only clean the injectors in Direct Injection motors. Carbon deposits on the valves are untouched, which is an issue with pretty much all DI motors.

      If you...

      Looks like the battery area was the most inflicted. Electrical perhaps???

      Glad everyone is okay.

      Engine in the back? Heck no!!! And VW will never give it to you.

      RWD with the engine in the front, tranny in the back a la the 924/928/944/968, I would love that. However, I doubt many would...

      Although both my cars have the same manufacturer's recommendation (5w30 or 5w40), I can't remember the last time I used 5w40 here in Southern Cal. But there are parts in the US where heat and...

      The 'w' after the 0 or 5 is the winter/cold viscosity, the 30 or 40 is the summer/hot viscosity. If your location sees days of 95*F and higher regularly, I would use 5w-40 or 0w-40.

      These new motors are very complex. I would never expect them to be "cheap" to own. VW/Audi will make truck loads of profit from the maintenance and repair of these turbo-charged motors.

      I've heard the same... US models have only DI, which means glorious carbon build-up on valves. :banghead:

      I noticed you also have a little spoiler at the top of the rear windshield. Wouldn't that defect the air from flowing down to the big wing that sits much lower?

      You're in the wrong forum; the "New Beetle" and/or the "Brake" sections would be better.

      Anyhow, I believe the ABS light only goes on when there's a fault. If the ABS system is behaving like...
