In all the 13 years I have had the Jetta, I never got a bad (water
and/or dirty fuel) batch of fuel. I did get a tank once in South or
North Carolina that made the engine run noisy as hell as I got up North
in colder weather. I've also NEVER had a fuel gelling problem, no ever
added any additives to prevent this. A couple years ago, I began using
Power Service diesel additive. Before that, I did not use any additives.
