I've used Amsoil Cetane Booster and occasionally PowerService, with good results. The only issues I've had are with the exhaust treatment system.

Well, in Europe "premium" may be > 50 cetane, but that's very tough to find in the U.S. I went with a definition of premium diesel I found on the VW TDI forum when doing my initial research about...

I spent a lot of time wrestling with similar issues when I bought my 335d a couple of years ago. My experience is that no one brand (on the east coast) is guaranteed to be premium (> 45 cetane). ...

I can't speak for others, but I average about 25k miles per year. That's the whole reason I bought a diesel -- an engine that lasts and excellent mileage (the phenomenal torque was nice, too).

Yeah, I tried the V-Power while driving in Canada. The cetane wasn't labeled, but the 335d ran very smooth. Wish they had it available in the U.S.

Another vote for V1. I also have two, one for my car, and one for my wife's car. No detector is perfect, but the V1 has saved me so many times, it has paid for itself many times over.

The car does phone home and provide quite a bit of diagnostic information. My 335d is in the shop right now getting the fuel filter changed as part of normal service (at 32k miles).

I've averaged around 25-26 mpg in true city environments, going from traffic light to traffic light and not getting above 40 mph. The 335d is at its best on the highway.
