If you want to put your Rabbit to sleep ------ use lots of ether. This is for the first owners and total beginners on diesels. Forget about using starting spraycans , you are likely to damage the VW engine. It is too lightly built to withstand the " fuel knock" created by ether. Tempting ??? yes indeed and I carry one at all time. As you get more experience you get to a stage where you will be able to use ether on a VW safely ------but by then you won't be needing it. What can you do in place of ether , to get going ???. LOTS. Hagar. PS: My advise is to NEVER use starting fluid on your VW.
