Since now the lesser cousin VW seems to be included, I got a '99 2.0 bug
with 311K kms (almost 195K miles). My other 1.8T bug is a young'un with
204K kms. '92 Eurovan (seasonal camping vehicle) has over 224K kms.

In related news: I can now vouch for Amsoil synthetic power steering fluid
as a viable replacement for green gold (Pentosin and equivalent). Had it in
the 2.0 bug for a few months performing well and with no ill effects. Got
it even mixed with Pentosin and no trouble. Here in western Canada,
interior BC (as opposed to west coast), it is not cheaper but it is
available at 1 parts store in Williams Lake. Costs are about $11 CDN for a

Happy motoring,
