Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
When I bought my 2002 jetta tdi brand new I was getting 40 plus miles a gallon. Now I'm only getting 33 miles a gallon. My car is an automatic which are said to get lower gas miles then a stick shift. Any Ideas how I can fix this problem?
There are several items that can, and do, affect your mileage rating:
How long has it been since you changed your air filter?
How many miles has it been since you've done a tune-up?
Have your driving habits changed at all?
Have you checked the air pressure in your tires lately?
Have you had a geographical change in your driving routes?
All of these conditions, and a few more, do affect your mileage.
Try updating everything when you can, and see if your mileage goes up.
Even something as small as a different spark plug can do what you're experiencing.
Hope this helps you some.
