So nice to connect with others with a passion for goooood gas mileage. I've had a 2004 NuBug TDI, PD engine "BEW", since Feb. Nifty car ~ 140kmi. Whoops, slipping clutch. 1,400 quote from Dealer, parts about 500 bucks, so my buddy and I have spend about 8 hrs, just to get to the point of having the transaxle out. What a hassle! Wished I'd checked here first. Wheels hang down while on jackstands, so passenger side CV boot cracked. Have a new rear seal and 'housing', hope the flywheel's OK (using stock VW parts, twin mass flywheel, etc.), 'cause stock flywheels are high. I'm getting 50 mpg fairly regularly, 42 psi in tires, 5W40 right now, will switch to 5W30 on next oil change.
