    Well I have been officially initiated into VW ownership...the car is at University VW getting serviced! On my return trip from California with the 968 shell it went into limp mode while going up a pass. Thankfully after I shutdown and restarted it was fine. Brought my VAGCOM cable with me and it looks like it's the MAF. Cleaned it and it still did it again further down the road. Was able to get home thankfully, hopefully it gets fixed quick!

    And gas mileage was great! 21 mpg on the way down with an empty trailer, 19mpg on the way back with the shell. For comparison, my Frontier did the same trip (basically) averaging 13-16mpg. So that's a 12-25% difference in cost/mile!

    Yeah, I assumed 3.50 for regular and 4.00 for diesel.

    Car is fixed now! Dealer found a tear in one of the charge pipes.
