Re: EEK! They've taken the sulfur out of Marine Diesel!
When I fill the Passat up (which is about every 3 weeks... the result of 50mpg on the highway) I just fill the 5 gallon jerry for the boat. That about covers my sailing use. This way I get fresh diesel.
I had the Jetta 6 (2010) and now the 2013 Passat TDI. They are very similar to drive, the main difference being a much softer ride in the Passat, more room, and more soundproofing.
