    And, despite all the fuel these large V8's and V10's use, it is still better for the environment to keep an old car going rather than replace it with a new one that required new steel, plastic, batteries, leather etc. etc.

But diffent year models also have different engines and will have different fuel maps yes.
    Are you able to change these maps?

    The 2007 returns with 11.7l/100

    Mine has 18" Coopers
    FIL's has 17" Pirelli Scorpions

    Both BKS engines.
    Driven in convoy.
    Swopped driving in front positions from refuel to refuel.

    Still the same results.

    However....
    After I started putting mine in Sport Gear mode, the condition in the long haul drops down to 9.1/100km from Laingsburg to Worcester.
    Cruise control off and driving at about 130km/h

    So there is definitely something you say about driving in sport mode.
    I very rarely drive in sport mode if you are referring to the gear shifter? Air suspension if I am not towing is in sport but towing I need to go up to comfort due to the low tow hitch.

    So in your case the 2006 seems to give better economy.

    I hear what you guys are saying about not worrying about fuel consumption etc. But I still reckon mine seems to be excessive. Went away this week end with us towing and my father in law also towing. We drove pretty much in convoy. His disco 4 returns over 10 kays a litre while I sit at around 7 to 8. It would be great if I could get even close to that figure. In order for me to get over 700 kays on a tank, I have to drive to the point where I get nervous!! Ha ha ha. When I fill up then its over 100 litres going in. Seems the disco 4 can do the same mileage I can but with a tiny tank, I think its like 64 litres.

    So what sort of distance do you get on a tank with the V10? Im assuming its the same massive 105 litre tank?

    Enough!

    In town its ridiculous, between 16-19l/100km, on the open road it can dip to just below 10l/100km.
    Towing a heavy Exclusive caravan i get around 16l/100km.

    Hello Guys,

    Does anyone have a good second hand power sterring pump lying around? Mine is making a whirring/whining noise and I don't want to risk it packing up mid drive on the highway.

    So I get into the Touareg yesterday and as I start reversing out of the garage I notice that the brake pedal is bloody hard and I have no boost on the brakes.

    Traced the boost lines and lo and behold, a rat has decided to chow a tiny hole in the pipe (hopefully no other damage).

    Luckily it is a short rubber elbow, had a piece lying around at the farm workshop. All fixed again

    Hi there!
    During my last caravan trip with "Geit", (my lovely TDI V6 Touareg), I busted the sidewall on one of my Nexen tyres. Had to jump over to Thabazimbi quickly (being Saturday morning) for a new tyre, but alas, the only one I could find in the proper size was a Habilead (@ R1260)
    Fitted that, and back home decided to replace this as I prefer all tyres on my vehicles to be of similar brand. Minty's sell Nexen (another R 1500 ...) and despite even the Minty's salesman saying there is nothing wrong with the Habilead, I went ahead with this replacement.

    Thing is, I now sit with a BRAND NEW TYRE having done less than 500 kms. Absolutely guaranteed not to have any damage at all, for sale
    Any reasonable offers?
    Habilead 255/55 x 18R

    Ha ha ha ha!!! We would not want that now.

    Just feedback on my prop bearing story. Dropped it by my mate at prop city. They fitted a new bearing, cleaned and greased up a few other bits and pieces, balanced and re fitted. All good now again. Cost was R1725 Vat included.

    Hope you don't get propshaft balancing issues like most who get the hanger bearing replaced.
    It's the diafragm that is an inferior 1.7mm thick that keeps failing.
    Not the bearing.

    Hi gents.

    My Treg is going in for a service (225 000km) early in September. I want to replace the brake fluid with this service. I supply all the parts myself. How much brake fluid must I get? According to google we must use Dot4 or Dot5.1?

    Is it not maybe just low on fluid?

    3 x 500ml should be more than enough.

    Good day, does anybody have a spare full size 18 inch wheel I can use as a spare. I have a tire I can take with me, but I have no spare on the rear hatch door, so it will have to go on top of the roof.
    I don`t really want to change tires to the flat`s rim if the problem does arise.

    I've had my 2007 T1 3.0 V6 TDI for a year now and I've done 30 000km with it in that time. It's been an utter joy and I've loved every minute of ownership so far!

    Last week I went to Lesotho for work for a few days with it and when I got back, took the SO to the Lowveld where we went up and down the Panorama Route and into the Kruger National Park. In Sport mode on the gearbox an suspension, the car is quite a lot of fun in the twisty bits, despite its weight! The Good Year Wrangler Adventures AT tyres felt like proper sports car tyres, never complaining or feeling dodgy in the least.

    When I stopped at the Maseru Bridge Border Post last week, I noticed the VW badge on my right front wheel had gone missing - must have fallen off on the drive. Where would I be able to get a replacement centre cap or just the badge? I've got the 18" wheels on.

    On our way back from the Lowveld yesterday, just after Milly's on the N4 I was busy overtaking a truck when suddenly there was no power, no warning signs on the dash. Just no drive. As I was busy overtaking a truck, I couldn't go to the left, and there was a truck behind it too, so I came to a dead stop in the right hand lane. I put it in park and it started again, but running very rough. I then managed to pull over to the shoulder on the left. Smoke was coming from the engine bay.

    It turns out one of the little plastic clips that go onto the diesel return under the injector had popped off, so was pissing diesel out. There is no sign of a retainer clip and I see the others are held in place by a rubber. I always travel with a toolbox and some basics in the car, so I managed to push the pipe back on and secure it with zip ties. All good! No leak and I made it the 200km back home without issue. Checked it again now, and it's still secure and no sign of a leak. It seems it may have leaked there a bit for a while though - there is oiliness around the area and the head with caked on dust. I noticed on Sunday evening pulling away from the robot in Hazyview a lot of smoke in the car behind me's lights. Must have been that - not that I noticed anything in the cabin. Now there is no smoke at all.

    What would the right part be to retain the plastic bit to the metal pipe? I'll take pics in a bit if not sure what part I am referring to.
