Good to know I'll read up on diesel fuel additives.

I'm a huge diesel fan and a big opti-lube fan. I run summer mix most of the year and winter mix for the few months that it's below freezing.
Power service diesel kleen was my go to till I found opti-lube.

Interesting to see what happens here given the VW news.

Lots of emails being sent by LRNA to Solihull. Lots of emissions specialist engineers and software guys recoding their babies to comply with emissions.

Temporary slowdown on deliveries until ECUs reflashed. EPA MPG tests "updated".

Forgot to post this video but new diesel is perfect. Not one complaint.**Plenty of power, it's really quiet inside, and having to refuel less makes the td6 the new rover to order. I have logged over 2,000 miles at 26-29mpg.

It is now looking like my order for a 2016 RR TD6 is put on hold. Illinois and Minnesota have a state requirement to start producing B20 diesel by 2018. And as of now the RR tD6 is not approved to run B20 and will void the warranty. I should have had my delivery last week but haven't heard anything yet.
I am sure they will try to get me to buy a gas powered version instead. Not sure I will go for that as of now since I was all ready and excited about getting a new diesel. Might have to look for something else to tie me over for a while.

I stopped in to talk to the dealership about the new TD6. Sounds like they've made the DPF a non-issue assuming you run it on the highway somewhat regularly and don't idle all the time. The computer will give you plenty of warning on the status of the DPF.

Don't know if they've got enough parasitic load on the engine to prevent wet stacking. But once again, if you don't let it sit there and idle all the time in the cold, that also shouldn't be a problem.

Should be a good engine. Can't wait to see one pulling a series behind it.

The delivery on our ordered 2016 Td6 RR never happened. My sales guy suggested we order a petrol since they have not heard when the IL and MN orders will be released for sale. I am pulling the order and getting my deposit back. I picked an Audi for now and I will revisit the diesel RR in a couple years.

What happens if you bought one out of state? Are you saying only B20 is being offered there?

I wish we still got B20. Austin, for such a supposedly green city, is trying to ban biodiesel of any type.

While bio is carbon neutral they say it emits more NOx which is another bad byproduct of bio diesel.

Looks like the Audi diesels are now wrapped up in this:

The Force is strong with the National Corn Growers Assoc. From the Wiki;


Ethanol[edit]

In addition to being used as food, corn is a source of ethanol fuel, and the NCGA has provided standards and guidelines for farmers growing ethanol.[4]


The NCGA has also advocated for continued support and subsidies from the United States government for the ethanol fuel program, citing studies on the benefits for fighting climate change of switching away from fossil fuels towards ethanol.[5]


The NCGA has cultivated close relationships with political candidates including United States President Barack Obama, back when he was a Presidential Candidate for the 2008 Presidential election.[6]

Ban biodiesel? Where'd you hear that? News to me.

Not sure where you've been looking, but you can buy B100 from at least one place in town.

They have been talking it up for about 5 years now. Eco wise has B100, but everywhere else has just about fazed it out.

I'll have to find that article. I'm sure I have it bookmarked somewhere. I'll post it when I find it.
