Volkswagen Forum

Hi everybody! Looking at buying a Volkswagen diesel (new) for my son to go back and forth to school in. Does anybody know a good forum on these cars. Was wondering about the possibility of nixing the egr. Thanks.

Go to the TDI club as mentioned above and search for "epsilonian". That's what they call the electronic device connected to the MAF to fool the computer.

I was filling up my '87 TD when a Jetta TDI owner pulled up to fill his car. I asked him what he was getting for mgg and he replied "about 52 highway", damn. These cars have something like a 18 gal tank, I believe.
