RE: RE: Aligning a quattro

QSHIPQ@aol.com decided to speak these words:

Actually, sometimes its pretty random.  If the cars that come to us only 
have about 5-10 miles on them, they are well into the red, so maybe 
enough for 10 miles.  Sometimes cars come to us with about 20 miles on 
them, so i assume that they have been driven at the port or something 
like that a bit, and sometimes they come with about 1/4 tank, at the 
most...so i guess the port guys put some gas in there for us.

The same thing goes for VW, except they put even less gas in the 
cars...god.  We have found out that on the new A4 series cars, you can go 
WELL below the final red line before running out of gas.....
