2015 VW Golf TDI MPG Highway Road Test
MPGomatic.com takes a new 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI for a highway MPG road
The 2015 Golf TDI uses a brand new 2.0L turbo diesel engine that is rated at 150 horsepower. The official EPA
fuel economy estimates are 30 city / 45 highway MPG. The EPA has been
historically conservative when rating diesel engines. With a wee bit of
skill and restraint, you can leave those numbers in the dust ... =)
This VW Golf TDI is equipped with the six-speed DSG automatic transmission.
Volkswagen TDI - Dieselgeek EGR delete install
This is a step-by-step instructional video showing how I installed a race
pipe and EGR cooler delete kit from Dieselgeek.com on my 2002 Volkswagen
Jetta TDI. Written instructions were not included in either kit. This mod
did trigger a Check Engine Light after about 12 miles of driving.
The race pipe and EGR cooler delete kit together ran me exactly $169.01

VW Jetta Tdi Turbo Diesel Sleeper rollin some coal with many upgrades
Just a quick powerbrake video of my everyday driver before I pull the
tranny for a manual swap. Has a larger turbocharger, larger injection pump, stage 2 chip,
race nozzles, and 3" turbo back Exhaust. This thing is crazy quick compared to
stock at a snails pace of 90hp. It cannot put the power to the ground with
the rebuilt automatic trans, it will barely hold half throttle before the
tranny slips or the tires break loose. Many more upgrades are in store for
this little sleeping monster : ) So be sure to subscribe, enjoy!

(boiling in the engine oil) will usually work perfect. add some off the
shelf ATF to really clean them up.

A visual aid to what to expect when replacing the Fuel Filter on the 2009
VW Jetta TDI (A5 - CBEA ).

at the following links. Many thanks to those who took the time to document
and share the information at these links.
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.
Banks Top Diesel Dragster: NHRDA Nationals
On March 6th, 2010 the Banks crew tested out the rail's new "Stroker" 427
cu. in., twin-turbo 7.0L Duramax engine
at the NHRDA Nationals in Wittmann, Arizona. The numbers for this trip out
were 7.670 @173.54. We were a little faster back in April 2009 when we ran 7.17 @
181.08. We've also run a best trap speed of 190MPH with the car on a
separate test session. All those runs were with our twin-turbo'd Duramax, and now we're getting set to hit
the track with a supercharged configuration. Stay tuned for that! More info
