Well if all the tanks go like this first one, I will be very satisfied  
with my "new" Jetta.  First tank got 44.4 mpg (528 miles/11.9  
gallons).  About 1/3 of that mileage was on the highway at 70+ mph and  
the rest in short stints on the highway or in traffic back and forth  
to work.  I also added my first 5 gallons of home brew biodiesel to  
the car (about B35) and will see how it runs.  It is my intention to  
run it almost entirely on my home brew like I did my 98.  Anyone on  
list have any long term experience running your PD on biodiesel?  I  
have also decided to upgrade the filter to the Cat 2 micron setup to  
make sure it is getting only the highest quality fuel.  I already  
filter the fuel twice before it goes in the car but a 2 micron filter  
would be an extra added Plus.  Hsyden

one party, a leader who claims to have special powers outside the law  
to keep the country "safe", secret prisons where people are locked up  
without charges or trial and government opponents are branded as  
unpatriotic and charged with aiding the enemy."
