    Passat New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Hi guys, I have a VW Passat 2007 1.9L TDI Diesel. I had about a quarter of a tank and put 9L of petrol in by mistake before realising. I have been advised to fill the tank up fully with diesel and everything will be ok. The thinking is that petrol is cleaner than diesel and will not harm the...

    MK1 Rabbit Electrical

    My manual 1980 diesel is having a few issues. A few days ago the engine cranked for a good 6-7 seconds before catching. When it did (choke on), it started hard. This has happened twice now. Since then, when idling at a stop sign, it felt like it was going to stall. Tried pressing down the...
