maybe im wrong but, i have not heard of anyone have'n abnormal sludge probs  
with the audi engines, the main thing imo is letting the motor warm up before  
rev'n over 4k or so due to the oil is cold and has not coated all the 
internals  giving faster worn parts at higher rpm, if you guys are worried about 
carbon,  just run high octane which you should be already anyway, also maybe run a 
fuel  treatment every 2-3 months, i personaly boost mine pretty good everyday 
after  the oil temps rise,

ah, OK.  i often use the car for tiny  trips around SF, often
low speed,no time to warm up.  i've been on  mobil 1 since i went off
dealer servicing.  i do those italian  tune-ups though.

i'm probably selling my A4 soon anyway,  and getting into a
volvo XC70 or allroad.
