Gasoline Additive

Because many gasolines do not contain the necessary additives to help prevent carbon deposits in the fuel injection system, Volkswagen recommends the periodic use of Autobahn Gasoline Additive, Volkswagen part no. ZVW 246 001, which is available from any authorized Volkswagen dealer.


Follow all label directions. Do not use more than once every 2500 mi. (4000 km).

In extreme cases, where injector clogging and carbon deposits are severe, more comprehensive work may be required to completely solve the problem. For complete information on approved methods of fuel system cleaning and intake valve decarbonizing consult an authorized Volkswagen dealer service department.
