Having always had petrol cars I am still getting used to the diesel. Just got my 3.0 TDI Quattro.
I just love the "shove in the back" feeling of the diesel, but it does seem to vary and I can't work out why. I'm sure the car is fine, it's down to my driving and still learning.
Sometimes, 2nd gear will feel absolutely amazing, almost supercar levels of acceleration. Yet other times it will not feel quite so powerful. All on the same journey.
It may be that I am not choosing the right gear to feel the shove, and missing the "sweet spot" on the new gear?
Hope this makes sense.
What is the best way to drive these diesel engines for maximum performance (and thrill).
