Canadian-spec diesel with 2.4 engine and 5 speed manual transmission.
~ 250,000 miles and going strong, in fact it is still a daily driver for us, and we drove it to the Arctic Ocean and back last summer! We carried 5 Scepter NATO cans from Princess Auto under the rear seat for extra range and they fit under there beautifully and safely.
Converted for operation as "Single Tank Heated Blend" (STHB) with a PlantDrive VM3 filter, Vegtherm Standard and injectors modified specially for vegetable oil use. We run 80 percent veg and 20 percent diesel in summer and 50/50 in colder months.
Large 80 litre (21 USG) original (plastic) tank, and great fuel economy of up to 35 miles per gallon (Imp.) / 8 litres per hundred km, means you get great range, and it cruises well at 55 mph to get best fuel economy.
We will install brand new, proper reinforced sidewall tires and new wheel covers.
The van will also receive a new injection pump seal and a new alternator.
Timing belts and water pump were recently renewed, as well as front brakes, some new hoses, and other work.
New auxiliary battery last year. New starting battery this spring.
New CV axles.
Well maintained, mechanically simple (no computer, no sensors, no turbo), reliable. Fridge and stove work, canvas is in good shape. Note that the original propane tank was too old to re-certify and so currently we use one of the small green propane bottles for the stove, when we use it (mostly just cook outside with the other stove we have).
Only reason for sale is we found a newer one in very nice condition (German import TDI), and could not pass it up, otherwise we would be keeping this one.
Act quickly, these are a rare and sought after van in Canada and even more rare in the USA, and since it is 25 years old it can be imported to the USA. Parts are available through Canadian VW dealers, parts vans (cargo vans) can be found here and there in Canada (94-97) and the 2.4 diesel "T4" van was sold for many years in large number in Europe, so is not a rare engine over there, hence parts availability is good.
Comes with the bike carrier shown in photo.
Also has a trailer hitch with new wiring.
Contact us for more information. If flying in, we can pick up purchaser at the Kelowna, BC airport which is an hour south of our location near Enderby, BC.
