      Long answer...

      2.0 TDI just recently adopted Ad-Blue but the software is geared towards efficiency and performance (high NOx). On these models it's likely that a reflash is all that's needed. 2.0...

      At VW's HQ in Wolfsburg, they call this a "good value". VW is moving up in the world when we customers pay more for less. :laugh:

      Those wheels are detrimental to acceleration and MPG. Nice styling but the power/drive train is so Bud LITE.

      I wouldn't drive it on a sand dune... it would be duned in. :D

      Wow, that's hybrid fuel efficiency.

      Is this downhill most of the time? What is your average over a longer period of time... say 2000-3000 miles of the same type of roads and driving style?

      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...

      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...

      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...

      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?
