2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Forget the smoke billowing from 18-wheelers and the stench of a passing city bus, because diesel technology - as applied to passenger vehicles like the 2009 Volkswagen jetta TDI - has cleaned up its act





Jetta TDI vs Hybrid, 1 tank to San Francisco Challenge
Matthew Welch, GM of Auburn VW believes in his New Jetta TDI so much that he's accepted the challenge of pitting his car against the Toyota Prius for fuel economy supremacy. He and a film crew will fill the tanks of both a New Volkswagen Jetta TDI and the Toyota Prius in Auburn Washington. They'll attempt to drive them both to San Francisco without stopping at a single gas station to fill up, all under the watchful eye of the film crew documenting everything. Which one will make the whole journey? Will either of them even make it?





DRIVE Volkswagen Jetta TDI
You don't have to buy a hybrid to get good fuel economy. For enthusiasts who want to tread lighter, VW offers up the Jetta TDI. Like all modern diesel engines it's clean, quiet and efficient. Tom Voelk takes a look at this different way to go green.





Jetta Takes on Prius: Toyota Prius vs. VW Jetta TDI Diesel
MORE ON HYBRID VS. DIESEL @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=141626 We were locked in mortal combat, just as adrenaline-addled Leonidas and hubris-filled Xerxes met at the Battle of Thermopylae, when a relative handful of highly specialized Spartans held off a seemingly bottomless torque-pit of Persians for seven excruciating days. Here we have the 2009 Toyota Prius gasoline-electric hybrid, embodying up-to-the-minute fuel-sipping methods and machinery intended to take us immaculately into a spotless future. In the other lane, the newly introduced 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI turbodiesel, a rolling relic of tried-and-true yester-tech locomotion (upon whose sooty breath the Industrial Revolution itself was built) that has been remastered, reengineered and reintroduced to be meaner, cleaner and more efficient than ever. But the battle left us weary — done in by the struggle and tired of each other like Siamese twins on prom night.

2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Full Test
CHECK OUT THE NEW DIESEL JETTA: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=132146?tid= edmunds.il.home.photopanel..3.* For those alternative-fuel-conscious, carbon-conscientious driving enthusiasts among us, the big news from Volkswagen is electric, mainly because it has introduced a car that isn't. The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Clean Diesel (yep, that's its official name) is the first diesel-powered new car to be certified for sale across the entire U.S. — including California and the four states that piggyback their emissions regulations on the Golden State since they all turned up their tailpipe-sniffing noses at everyone else in 2006. So it was probably no mere coincidence that Volkswagen chose Santa Monica, California, as the site for the introduction of the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. And as we later tested the Jetta TDI near our Santa Monica office by driving the Pacific Coast Highway and the canyon roads of Malibu, we were happy to flaunt this turbodiesel's new clean-and-green status in the backyard of so many Prius-driving members of the celebrity set.





VW Jetta TDi 2009 Over 50 MPG
So I'm on my way home from summer vacation and it's a 10-11 hour drive over two days. I decide to find out for absolute sure WHAT mpg this car can get. So after a few hours on the road I pull into a truck stop (I realize now that this time spent on the road in the beginning reduced the displayed avg. mpg for the trip), found a small nozzle pump and start to fill up with b5 diesel. The pump kicks off after a few gallons so, just to make sure, I top it off just once. I pull back on the interstate, hit zero congestion, and drive 116 miles at 60 - 65 mph. I then pull into the rest stop. I hit the men's room (priority 1!) then went for gas. At the pump I take it slow to try and minimize backwash. I do not try to top it off this time. What you see here are the results. ---------------------------------- April 16, 2012 EDIT: WHAAAAT!? Almost 10k views?! Well I guess this means I gotta put up some kind of follow up video....

2009 VW Jetta TDI - Fuel Filter Change
Fuel Filter Replacement in a nutshell: 1) Replace every 20K miles (I do mine every 10K with oil change). 2) Have the right filter for your housing. 3) Engine OFF! Remove Upper Sound Absorber Panel. 4) Water Separator Service (1 Screw Plug, 1 Washer Seal) a. Remove Screw Plug and old Washer Seal with Torx T30 bit. b. Siphon water at bottom of Filter Housing from top of housing - A.K.A Fuel Sump. c. Siphon enough fuel to avoid spillage when Housing is opened. d. Reinstall Screw Plug with New Washer Seal. Torque 3 Nm (27 in-lb). 5) Fuel Filter Replacement (1 Filter, 2 Seals on Filter, 2 Seals in Housing) a. Remove 5 Torx T30 Bolts and lift off Upper Filter Housing with lines undisturbed. b. If you see any amount of metal particles TAKE THE CAR TO A PROFESSIONAL! You have a major issue. c. Pull out old Filter and Seals in Housing. d. Clean as necessary Lower Filter Housing by Siphoning out remaining Water/Fuel. NOTE: Removal of Lower Filter Housing is not a requirement. So long as you remove any contaminants found at the bottom of the canister by other means. e. Install New Filter and New Seals. f. FILL CANISTER WITH CLEAN FUEL to help purge air. (approx. 650 ml or 22 oz) ---OR--- Use VAG-COM to operate fuel pump from fuel tank to prime the fuel system (the air will be sent back to the tank to vent) SEE VAG-COM STEP BELOW (7). g. Reinstall Upper Filter Housing and secure with 5 Bolts. Torque 5 Nm (44 in-lb). 6) Reinstall Upper Sound Absorber Panel. 7) If you have VCDS/VAG-COM, operate fuel pumps to purge air from Filter Housing. 8) Otherwise, Start Engine & try to run it at 2K RPM for at least 30 seconds. If Engine shuts down, restart engine (this method is not preferred. it is bad for your High Pressure Fuel Pump). NOTE: Turning key to turn on Accessories does not turn on the fuel pumps, from what I have read, only when the key is turned to Ignition (Engine Start). -------------------------------------- A visual aid to what to expect when replacing the Fuel Filter on the 2009 VW Jetta TDI (A5 - CBEA ). I used as a reference the Bentley Publishers VW Jetta Service Manual (2005-2010) as well as a couple of very good write-ups which can be found at the following links. Many thanks to those who took the time to document and share the information at these links. http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/a5/2009-2010-VW-TDI-fuel-fil ter.htm http://www.tdiblog.com/tdi-do-it-yourself/replacing-fuel-filter-a5-brm-cbea /#more-148 I obtained the Mann Fuel Filter from IDPARTS.COM (formerly TDIPARTS.COM), UPS Ground Shipping was free with them. Amazon.com also offers the same Mann Fuel Filter for those who are exclusive to Amazon.





How Far Can You Drive On One Tank of Diesel? - Chevy Cruze 2.0TD vs. VW Jetta TDI
We set out to verify these cars' lofty highway-fuel-economy ratings—42 mpg for the Jetta, 46 for the Cruze—by driving from our Ann Arbor headquarters to the world's largest truck stop in Walcott, Iowa. After that 409-mile drive, the Jetta was still 200 miles from empty and the Cruze more than 300, so we turned around and headed for Engineered Diesel in Allendale, Michigan.
