not to hijack my own thread but i have to ask
how do you get 56+????
I've got a 91 non turbo, only get like at best 35.
And thats BJ60 up there not an FJ
yeah, i've been putting it off for a while.
I would not even consider repairing that frame. You can only weld in patches where you can see the holes. Most would weld in patches at the spring mounts and the tranny mounts. The rest of the frame becomes a weak link.
If it was a beater rig than that might be an option. The rig looks really clean and he uses it as a DD.
35MPG? Geez. Ive calculated on paper, on tripmeter, AND ScanGauge 2 over 65MPG numerous times using B20 with Stanadyne on level ground here in the Columbia Gorge (with no tail wind either). You driving again Satan himself or something? Ive got numerous other neighbors with TDi's who contantly get well over 45MPG all the time. Oh, and yeah we're chipped and tuned while rippin' rubber. I must also admit that we all have the DSG which might make a difference, but I wouldnt think it'd be that much.
Check out the TDiClub site sometime. Several are getting over 75MPG.
im on tdi club too, not as much though
i'd had a bunch of work done by Justin at greaseworks in corvallis - the 1.9 non turbo never really amped more than 45mpg doing more than 45mph due to resistance. we tweaked it a bunch, compression is outstanding, pump timing within range, cleared the water separator, don't know what else to do, probably do the fuel filters again since i've run so much b99 lately.
BJ/FJ. Its all a Cruiser!
true that, but only one can smell like the colonel's masterpiece!
