    I at least think my gas mileage is not so good. I have a 03 B5.5 Wgn, 1.8t, tip, stock except for K&N air filter, I put in the highest octane gas I can find in my area which is 92, I do 90% of my driving on the interstate about 50 miles per day and run about 70mph, but I am only getting about...

    Hi. This is actually a question for a friend of mine. Seems his 99 Passat has run out of gas. He added a couple of gallons and now it won't start. Acc. Power seems okay. Sounds like the fuel pump is powering up. Any ideas? Thanks!!

    Had this car for about 3.5 months now and I'm still opening the gas filler door with my finger. Please tell me there is a switch somewhere in the car. I read the manual, and checked the litlte chart that came with it, but maybe I missed it. TIA

    Ran out of gas the other day. I pulled over as soon as I sensed it, but needed to have gas brought to me. Unfortunately I forgot to tell them to bring 93 since I'm chipped and they gave me a gallon on 87. I then drove over to the nearest gas station and filled up with 93. The car felt weird...

    After having some work done to my 2000 1.8T ATW Passat, I noticed that my gas mileage was rather low, particularly for in-town driving. Although I do a mix of city and highway driving, according to the MPG gauge on the computer, it was getting about 16-18 MPG in city driving. From experience...

    I was washing my 2001 1.8T Passat last week, and I decided to rinse down the engine. Don't worry, i use zero water pressure. But What I did was spray some simple green all over the engine, then rinse it down. I noticed a very slight amount of what looked like gasoline in the water running...

    I have a 2001 B5 passat with a 1.8T aug motor. Its a 5 speed. I know the MAFS is bad and the check engine light has been on for awhile because of it. Yesterday the car died about a half mile into a drive. When I restarted it it would start fine and run good but as soon as I step on the gas it...

    Just took a long trip and got 29.5 miles per gallon. I've never seen it nearly that high ever. Wish I would have done it earlier. Considering that car uses about $3000 in gas annually, I would have saved $300 per year.
