Diesels are Back!
Can You Say "Pumpe Düse?"

2004 Jetta TDI

With gasoline prices are soaring without any let-up, Diesels are making a comeback. Diesel technology pioneer Volkswagen has issued two new vehicles in its lineup of Diesel engine powered cars. The 2004 Touareg V10 TDI comes with a muscular 10-cylinder direct injection diesel, while the 2004 Jetta TDI's four-cylinder 2.0L TDI offers an excellent EPA fuel efficiency rating.

These new Diesels are a far cry from the old smoky and noisy versions of the past. Extremely high tech, they are much cleaner, efficient and employ Volkswagen's advanced "Pumpe Düse" technology, i.e. "unit injectors." These are located at each cylinder to deliver the fuel for combustion, creating a very high fuel pressure, better atomizing and precision metering the fuel injection into the cylinders. This results in increased engine efficiency and power as well as a quieter engine. Ready for a long-range vehicle and some savings? Drivers are always wanted at VW.
