If your previous posts are any indication, I believe you've done a fair amount of work to your vehicle in the last couple of months.

If the work was well done and you are now more or less happy with the way it runs, then I'd like to think you will have many more enjoyable miles ahead of you. Enjoy !!

Better not to let the tank get empty. An empty tank has more space for the gas evaporates. Also more chance to get condensation or other junk at the bottom of the tank into the fuel filter. Another reason to fill the tank whenever gets at the half is that you won't feel it hard at the wallet.

I feel like I need a new fuel filter :lol: my mpg is lower so I think it's clogged, I used fuel cleaners after I had it changed :poke: :eek:h:

Oh I know it will be running fine, but I may spring for a new Passat before that :p
Now why would you consider getting a newer Passat after all the work you've done to the current one?

To me that sounds illogical, as you know how little you'll get for yours, given it's age. If you are happy with the way yours is now running then you should keep maintaining it and run the wheels off it.

On the other hand, "NEW" is always nice. ;)

Yet, therein lies a small problem...the newer Passats* VW is selling are only "different from", not so much "better than" the 1998 - 2005 Passats. You'll either need to accept a cheapening after paying the same price (for a B7) or open the wallet (seams bursting) and go upscale for a CC.

*I've been down that road a ways and I didn't like what I saw, maintenance cost wise.
