Never felt need for a robust pump! But on a serious note, won't the fuel from the tank be taken in from the bottom?

Update on my Kodiaq -

Skoda agreed to my suggestion ( as suggestions by members here) to just drain the fuel from Shell, kill the errors manually and fill xp 95 and try it out.

It worked - Skoda tested the car to close to 200 kms under different driving conditions - interesting to note that they were not focused on speed or rpm. Different condition for them was engine temperature. I am not technical and service advisor said they will take readings from engine under different conditions. Will share report once I get it.

Brother, good that errors have settled. But don’t buy this nonsense from dealer about the different readings in different engine temperatures. They’re not technically equipped to do all of that. And from my experience, for my car they’ve done several such trials for different issues, but that’s not a fair judgement of issue being permanently resolved. My suggestion would be to completely flush the system of any remaining bad fuel, burn a whole tank of XP95, and then get the fuel pump replaced at your cost for longer peace of mind. They can also show you on the diagnostics, different fuel pressure readings under different RPMs. That can be matched against the required values. If everything is fine, leave it as it is. But slightest of deviations I would suggest you to change the fuel pump.

So did they agree post keeping the car for a week?
You also mentioned that they “tested”, so have they already or are they going to?
It just breaks my heart to see the repercussions of an action of filling up a tank to this. And it’s a new car

Gave me relief knowing that.

Though engines are from same family, can you please elaborate on 2.0 TSI v/s 2.0 TFSI ?

Skoda tested before handing the car back. They got someone from Skoda itself to test - so took time.

But got to mention that both Raja Skoda service and Skoda including Zac on twitter were super responsive to the whole thing. They did not charge me anything except the new fuel added to the car! Very impressed with Skoda and the attention my car got during this episode.

Can someone share the price for the 4 years service package and 2 years extended warranty for the L&K model. I will really appreciate it.

TSI and TFSI are similar, TFSI uses advance fuel injection technology which helps to achieve better performance and effeciency.

To give you further comfort, I have it in writing from Audi that its safe to use normal petrol.

Wow. You made my Sunday.

I hope Skoda can also offer such commitments in writing.

After going through the thread I started searching xp95 in Pune but found only XP100(160/ltr) at coco pumps. ( The delta is reducing as the xp100 price is fixed for long time) Filled car with 38 ltr, found no noticeable difference compared to shell normal in 10 min drive from the pump. Maybe I will start seeing a difference after a few kms.

"Poor fuel quality" is Skoda's favorite phrase for any issues with their engine. If they ran the diagnostics, please ask them for a full technical summary of what error codes were found in the car, how they determined that the fuel was of poor quality, and which of their technical tests did the fuel drained from the car fail to pass.

If you don't make enough of a hue and cry now, you'll be at risk of getting stranded by the side of the road again as they haven't fixed anything and have just returned the car back to you with the hope that nothing will go wrong again. In reality, they are completely clueless and are just deferring further technical debug until the next time your car breaks down.

It might be marketing gimmick also, as engine specifications & performance are ditto for A4 / Octavia / Superb / Kodiaq & A6 / Octavia RS 245.

Please correct if I am wrong.
