    No I don't but the Gen4 Passat should have PumpeDuse injectors which should be be more forgiving of less than perfect fuel than common rail.

    Hi Bruce, looking at stepping up in the world:-) hope you're not trading the 80's for a Jetta? :-)

    I looked into the VW thing a while back and I think the golf up to the MK5 would run bio no issues. So if it's the same engine than you're fine.
    What I heard from other members is that the fuel needs to be very good, the bloody Germans are less forgiving than the Japs :-)

    good luck and keep us posted

    Jens, I'm keeping the 105 cruiser.
    I've 2 grandchildren now that need transport occasionally. Unfortunately, Grandma's failed shoulder surgery makes it impossible for her to lift babies in and out of a high car.

    The research I did was as mentioned on the Golf including the MK5

    have a read through here

    I think even if one could run it on B50 it would make sense. These things are so fuel efficient, they get up to 1000k's per tank.

    If it is pump deuse the yes, I know a friend who ran his Audi on it until the engine passed away due to mechanical issues. I ran a peugeot common rail 307 on bio, until material issue sin the fuel filter stopped this. Make sure there is no water whatsoever in the fuel, the high pressure pump will not like this at all.
