Building a 4x4 bug is gonna be a ton of work... If you want a 4x4 diesel, go with a Suzuki Samurai with a VW diesel swap. And if you want a bug stick with rear drive. I can't recall seeing a bug with a diesel engine, but for anything other than crawling a gas engine seems like the way to go.

Well I said hell yeah only because I'm interested in making bio-fuel some day to get away from both the crazy gas prices and foreign oil. Well, curiosity (in making my own fuel) fits in there too.
Still looks like a tough Baja! Cool

well locutisj, i also like diesel power cuz you can make diesel on your own, i researched a bit with my dad, and found out you need 1st, tons of oil (i believe any oil will do) and 2nd, you still need to buy diesel.
but i still like the idea Smile

Now that you posted that link I do remember seeing that article a month or so ago. I definitely think thats a cool idea, and wish there was more info. My question is will it have the power (esp. top end) to be competitive?

If you can not control the PH of your home brew you can kiss the injector pump goodbye. $2500 for a Bosh rebuilt pump will buy a lot of diesel never mind the cost of the tools to set it up and the software to set pump timing. Seperating a TDI harness from the rest of the car is going to be hard especially since the ECM needs to see the coded key to start.

You want to go 4x4 get a Vanogon Syncro or Subaru 4x4 and use the after market $1200 reverse rotation Ring and Pinion to make the Subaru rear wheel drive.
Anyway you go plan on spending 20-50k.
