VW TDI Fuel Filter Restriction: Causes, Effects, and Cures
Replacing the fuel filter on your Volkswagen TDI is one of the simplest maintenance items you can do, but it is also one of the most crucial. Dr. Dan of Dr. Dan's Biodiesel explains how a clogged fuel filter can cause a multitude of symptoms, ranging from simple low power and hard starting to more deceptive ones such as limp modes, check engine lights, turbo malfunctions, and more. Often these are mis-diagnosed as much more serious problems when all that is needed is a fuel filter replacement. Prolonged operation with a plugged filter can also lead to much more serious and expensive problems. Dr. Dan discusses diagnosis, diesel fuel quality issues and recommended sources, and takes us through the procedure of replacing a fuel filter on a TDI vehicle.

How to Save Gas with Eight Secret Tips
Watch more How to Save Money on Gas for Your Car videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/53095-How-to-Save-Gas-with-Eight-Secret-Tips Think you know every trick to improving your gas mileage? Here are fuel-saving strategies that aren't common knowledge. Step 1: Don't sweat it Go on -- enjoy your air conditioner on the highway. Consumer Reports says that AC's gas-guzzling reputation is undeserved. And, at higher speeds, opening the windows or sunroof can hurt fuel economy by increasing drag. Step 2: Run on empty Don't fill up your tank until you're practically on empty; the less fuel you're toting, the lighter your car, and the more efficiently it will run. Step 3: Turn nozzle upside down After filling up your car, turn the nozzle upside down before you remove it from your tank. You'll get another half a cup of gas that's stuck in the hose. Step 4: Tighten your gas cap Tighten your gas cap after filling up so you don't let any precious fuel evaporate. Tip Try to park in the shade. This will also help prevent evaporation. Step 5: Use your overdrive Put your car in overdrive for highway driving. It lowers your RPM, or revolutions per minute, which saves gas. Check your owner's manual for the recommended speed at which you may use overdrive. Tip If you're due for new tires, get radials; they improve gas mileage by two or three percent. Step 6: Stay in your lane Stay in one lane as much as possible; weaving uses up more gas. Step 7: Cruise correctly Use cruise control when you're on a flat highway, where it can increase mileage by 7%. But don't use it on uneven roads, where it's not efficient. Step 8: Turn off everything Turn off all electronics and climate controls before you cut the engine. With the extras off, your engine won't have to strain so hard to restart, leading to better gas mileage. Did You Know? The Model T got 15 miles per gallon, just three mpg less than the average SUV.
