    for those wondering what various engines are approved for in the B5 - B20 ranges of fuel, here is the definitive (and rather long) article on same. first 4 pages are summary of current status, followed by detailed specs for various classes of TDI engines.

    I believe Cruze TD is first sedan in USA approved for B20 nationwide. Notice how some VW models can take B20 in Illinois only.. don't know why.

    The Illinois expection is because of that state's biofuel mandate. VW can't sell cars in a state where their cars don't meet reasonable product standards so they just made an exception. Every other state is B5 only.
