    Greetings, all. I'm a new member way out at Point Reyes, California. My partner has a 2005 Passat TDI wagon that I'm trying to take care of. It's been mostly trouble-free for the four years that we've had it, I'm pleased to report. We've run mostly B99 in it all along, with no apparent ill effects.

    welcometomyturbodies Welcome to the site!

    Good luck with your maintenance chores... you'll find plenty of info concerning your car here... http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/b5/2004-2005-vw-passat-TDI-FAQ-DIY.htm

    Please pay particular attention to the section dealing with the balance shaft, as that deals with a design flaw that must be corrected if the car is to last as long as it should.

    All the best,

    Yuri
