    I heard somewhere that one barrel of oil contains the comparable horsepower
    of 12 grown men for 8 hours per day for a year. It is still cheaper than a Starbucks
    coffee by volume.
    Also, look at all the plastics that are created per barrell.
    I bought a jetta Deisel a few years ago when gas was $2.00 per gallon.
    It is paid for and runs great. 50 mpg. People just are not paying attention.
    (I took the TDI letters off the back, I don't want anyone to steal it when gas
    hits $10.00 per gallon)!!!!

    Hadyour "egr cooler" replaced yet?? We had one too, had the intake manifold roto-rootered once, and the "egr cooler" replaced second time( within 6mos )traded it for a civic...Seems thesootfrom the diesel exhaust from the egr system mixes with crakcase oil vapors from the pcv and creates molassesin the intake. to thetune of $1600in dealer repairs in 6 months. which leads to a quick trip directly from the vw import dealers service dept down the block to the local honda dealer!

    This is from several months ago when the highest gas in the US was $3.48 a gallon.
