jeez thats a nice car! when ever my friends and I see one around here we always point it out and say "check out that tdi!" there really cool because there so different. its kinda sweet that a non sport car is really cool to 16 and 17 year olds but all my friends hypermile now so that might be why

TANGOJETTA,
tdiclub.com is where I found my car exactly 2 weeks ago. I have since had a herniated disc, pinched nerve, & back surgery, and my wife left me her Accord automatic, due my numb left foot, not really able to drive a manual at the moment. But my wife manged to get 42 mpg, 60% city driving, impressive.

Third tank, 90 % city is 40 mpg with air. I will post someday with just hihgway miles, when I am cleared to drive longer than 15 minutes at a time.

I am getting a little better mileage, 48.74 mpg at 502 miles, 10.299 gallons. I managed these #'s averaging 70 mph. TDI's are awesome.

Hi gasSavers,
I haven't posted in a while. Since the last time I posted I had my ecu retuned byRocketchip, Injector nozzles changed to pp520s, replaced the turbo with Vnt 17/22 (original one finally gave up). I still managed to get a best of 49 mpg. But since it has been cold, I regularly see 42-44 winter mpg without trying at all, still very happy with my TDI.

Thanks for the update.

So, what were the mods for? Is it a regular wearing out issue, or for a little better overall performance?

Yeah I was wondering also if those mods make the car quicker, or more efficient, or quieter etc? I test drove an automatic TDI and almost wrecked it because it wouldn't move when I stepped on the accelerator. I thought I was pulling into slow traffic, the salesman said "go ahead and pull out, it'll go", and it went about as fast as a bicycle...I got halfway across the highway and realized it would take about 15 seconds to reach the speed the traffic was going. That crushed our hopes of getting one. Maybe we just need to test drive a stick shift.
