It's not like it was on reddit, then on lifehacks.com, then on 10-12 other forums and then I found it.

It would be greedy of me not to offer my help when I see it could be needed. I am not profiting in any way from its use and neither are any of those who use it

Not my point at all, I didn't know if you gleaned that specific dealer from reddit or not. I know that other options are all over those sites, but they mostly seem to have been fixed, so I figured perhaps they were looking specifically for exploited links.

2003 Jetta TDI GLS Wagon, 5spd, crappy upsolute tune. Malone or Kerma tune coming soon, I hope.

I believe in efficiency with enjoyment. Trying to get economy without sacrificing comfort. It's working!

had to post a message and tell you that our HX's are brothers. Mine has a date of manufacture of 2/96, where yours is 5/96. I was reading your posts, following your civic thread. Seems we've gone through similar issues, egr, suspension. Mine, well not to hijack the thread, but a lot of work to get it back up to working again. The list goes on and on! It had bounced around family members and now it's back in my hands, slowly restoring it. I think it's running better now than when it did new!

I just wanted to tell you thanks for your posting it helped me a lot. In helping me in remembering lean burn mode, and all the different ways to get the fuel economy. It's more like a maze and if you succeed you get rewarded with mpgs! That surge that I was seeing on the highway I began to feel more and more as I repaired the car. Here I thought something was wrong, nope.. That's normal and good to have that surge and the slight loss of power. Almost feels like someone is pushing the car backwards from the front.

so thanks!!

Is anyone else on ecomodder getting 40+ out of a stock HX? I was going to do a bunch of mods and copy AndrewJ/Basjoos's genius work but that's until I found out I hit my mpg goal with my car stock. (44+ mpg) Of course now I'm carpooling so I get 80+
I have a stock HX (I did have, sold it to my son). He is learning how to drive it and averages about 50 mpg. He almost gets as much as I did when I had it. When I say stock I mean engine is bone stock with 250,000 miles on it. I (he) does run lean burn all the time on light load. I averaged about 55 mpg when I had it.
