    Re: 06 VW GOLF TDI advice required

    My 2005 R5 TDI Touareg runs happily on B100 when I can get it. Over 80k now, (say 8k l of fuel used). 1200 l has been bio. The first (say) 300 l were around B30, and since then it has been B70 - B100...

    Actually, you are better off than those TDIclub guys or us! Your Seat with its VW 1.9 TDI has the "biodiesel-ready" factory mods that VW keep hitting us over the head with, saying that the rest of us...

    Yeah,

  9. Re: Woolworths Plus Diesel Supplies on the Mid Nth Coast.

    That's right, Caltex use 2% biodiesel in all their diesel distributed out of Newcastle. This includes Woolworths outlets and Bogas. Bogas I think may be blended up to 5%.

    I think the trade practices act will put the onus on the supplier to prove that whatever YOU did was the cause of a problem, not the other way around. This would apply to a modification, getting it...

    Back to your original post ...
    To summarise:
    Woolworths sell Caltex fuel. Mid-north coast Caltex fuel comes from Newcastle. Caltex put 2% Rutherford bio into all of their diesel distributed from...

    Re: Vw 2.0 Tdi Driver With Car Issues

    Ekko,
    This is ridiculous! Your golf is a great car and you should confidently expect at least 500,000km of economical, reliable motoring from a VW diesel. That's why you bought it in the first...

    I don't expect you have a bad car, but a dealer who hasn't put the resources into solving your problem.

    Re: Biodiesel use in mines

    I don't know, but I think the tax rebates available for petro-diesel for off-highway use would make bio use quite expensive for a mining company.

    Yes, I have a VW TDI. Mine is an R5 (5 cylinder) Touareg - you can't get that model in the USA. It runs well on bio. I typically run B50, but have been happy up to B100 from time to time. It performs...
