    Been contemplating an engine conversion for my 85 Golf Diesel. After repeatedly seeing the black soot spewing out of the tailpipe, I'm giving serious thought to converting to a lesser polluting gas engine or going full electric. Any thoughts on this are most appreciated!

    I was pumping gas in My 2007 Rabbit with it running. It died. And I started it back up after fueling. And when I did. The red steering wheel light came on and I have no power steering. I've never had a issue with the power steering at all. Any help would be much appreciated
