Contest!: Name that GS Garage entry <RE-OPENED!>

<edit> Second edition of "Name that GS Garage entry" is closed.
Scroll down to post 12 for the start of the thread on this (now closed) second contest<end edit>

Help!
I'm buying a new-to-me car and I haven't a clue of an appropriate name under which to add it to the GasSavers Garage. This isn't a "contest" per-se, but a request for suggestions and for stimulating the creative thought processes to derive a suitable moniker.
The car is a 2005 Passat TDI wagon, 'wheat beige' paint, dark grey 'anthracite' leather interior, 2.0 liter turbo direct injection diesel, 5 speed automatic.
My personal preference for a name would be something based on a pun or a play on words other slightly obscure reference that will require some intellectual thought to derive the relationship between the name and the vehicle.
Suggestions?

With that TDI engine, VW interior, and wagon practicality...I'd call it "Winner".

P=MW^2 >> Passat = my wagon squared..... it's a volkswagen wagon (Also looks kinda like the equation for angular momentum)

Sand Crab >> coz' it's beachin' and vaguely sand colored I presume.

Sand Snail >> snail for the turbo and for driving it easy, and sandy colored.

Ol Trinken >> like like "ole" or "old" Trinken but it's "oil drinking" in german.

MOToKoW >> Mein Ol Trinken Kommando Wagen. My oil drinking staff car.

SoySnorter >> if going the bio route.

Anything that sounds like "cow" gets my vote.

Great suggestions! And a few that I think are lame, but I won't quash any possibilities. Who know what nugget lies just beyond a lump? Already I'm seeing other possibilities I hadn't considered.
Now that I have a monthly payment again, perhaps VW "Pass-the-hat" might work until the payment book ends, but then what?
Yes, biodiesel will be a large portion of its diet, but the name I might think is best does not have to take that into account.

Please, keep all your suggestions coming. I'll select something soon, like before my first fueling entry.

Ok, I'm not voting, as this isn't a contest, but that's very intellectual.

So, my vote is for Cap Cornholeo...
