Looking to buy another Treg TDI. A few CarFax reports that I reviewed have noted "fuel tank removal/replacement". What can I conclude from that? Someone put gas instead of diesel in the tank? Would you stay away from that Treg?

I'd worry simply because of the HPFP..... depending on what happened, they might've ran in on gas if that was the case until it stopped running just accelerating wear\damage to the fuel system..... or they might've already had a HPFP failure and instead of replacing the whole fuel system (the only proper fix), they might've "zip tied" things together just to make it run for a quick flip onto someone else (read you LOL)

However.... I'd attempt to find out more detail.... because it could also mean that they just performed the DEF heater recall on it.....
CarFax isn't the same as the actual service records from the dealer
