Location:
San Francisco, CA

the fuel line leak that my car suffers from is a common problem on 1992-1994 audi s4s and 1995 audi s6s. the location of the fuel line leak is particularly dangerous since it tends to drip or spray on the turbo which could cause an engine fire. from doing some research on the web (www.s-cars.org) it is clear that numerous other owners have experienced the same problem that i have and have had to battle audi to repair the problem at audi's expense. the general consensus is that this is a defect that could have disastrous consequences if not identified and repaired. given the fact that this problem has been experienced by both newer (1995) low mileage cars as well as older (1992) high mileage cars supports the argument that the problem is a design flaw, not a wear and tear issue. *ak

Location:
Jersey City, NM

fuel leak from supply fuel line in an 1999 audi a6 during very cold weather. when temperatures drop below 15-20 f the crimped end of the fuel supply line leaks fuel, which creates an intense fuel smell in the cabin, but only if not moving at high speeds. the fuel leaking from the hose travels towards the back of the engine and eventually drips onto the exhaust manifold creating intense smoke. apparently the cold line intensified by super cooled gas streaming through it causes the metal part of the line to contract at a sufficient rate as to allow fuel to leak out. when the fule line warms up, the leaking stops. dealer could not replicate the problem because the ambient temperature was 40f at the time of testing and hence refused to aknowledge the problem. subsequently the problem re-occured and i took several close-up pictures showing the leak and the ambient temperature. i can make the pictures available upon request. this is very dangerous condition that can go undetected at high speeds (high airflow dissipitates the smell) and/or if cabin air gets recirculated.*ak

i own a 2003 audi a4. i can not refuel the car with the opw model 12vw nozzle. the nozzle shuts off immediately and spills gas back out onto the car and person fueling the car. all other opw models and other makes of nozzles work normally. this is causing more of a problem in my area lately because most new gas stations use this nozzle and as old nozzles are being replaced, they use the opw 12vw. *nm
