Interesting thread

I'm a delivery driver doing mostly Highway run and I was in the same basic predicament TDI Jetta 5-speed or Toyota Prius.

I ended up going TDI and having fun modifying it..

It's a daily driver often putting on 200 to 300 miles a day.

Finding a good Guru is not too terribly difficult they work on my car for me when needed but it's not very often typically only every hundred thousand miles or so

Gasoline is cheaper than diesel but if you run W 85 it's basically free .... w85 is waste motor oil cut with 15% regular unleaded gas centrifuge to Micron / submicron level .

One big thing I did like about the Prius was that it is somewhat quieter than the Jetta but I will be doing some sound insulating soon ... of course that may be partially neutralized by my soon-to-be free flowing down pipe and straight through exhaust!

2003 Jetta TDI Wagon, 5 sp, 210K miles, Stock.....for now!
