Here is something interesting that happened to me in the TDI.

I went on a trip from Cincinnati, OH to Nashville, TN and back. After starting out I noticed that everytime a stepped on the gas the engine would start to miss. I thought something was wrong with the turbo. For the whole trip, I had to keep my foot off the accelerator. I was able to maintain 70 MPH with no problem, but when I put my foot into it it would miss bad.

When I was done with the trip and filled up, and the TDI got 51 MPG. The best ever. I took the car into the shop and all it needed was a new fuel filter.

Basicaly, I stayed away from the turbo the whole trip. How do you think this figures into the above graphs.
