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.
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.

the 2009 Volkswagen jetta TDI - has cleaned up its act

CHECK OUT THE NEW DIESEL JETTA:
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.
