[Vwdiesel] Crappy fuel? (was Touareg)

I quickly and cheaply solved my EGR and CCV problems.  Using VAG-COM I
adjusted the EGR so it doesn't activate as often.  And I disconnected the
CCV so that it vents into the air instead of my intake.  I need my TDI to
last as long as possible with minimum maintenance.
