I have got a strange "TDI ECOFUEL" badge on the back of my T5.1, which is a 140 factory kombi. When I bought the van I figured the "ECOFUEL" was just an option, but since looking into it further I have not been able to find anything about it online. The only thing I can find on Google in relation to VW “ECOFUEL” is to do Compressed National Gas variants, and this is definitely a diesel 140.

I decoded the production codes, hoping to find out if there were any clues as to what the “ECOFUEL” badge on the back means. Unfortunately I am no nearer to answers:

So far my only guess is that someone has fitted a random badge, from one of the CNG VW models, but does anyone have a better theory?

Also, what badge(s) should a 2014 T30 140 highland factory kombi have on the back?

I'd guess some joker has put it on for a laugh.

Looks like a genuine badge, there's loads on eBay for about a tenner. I put a genuine DSG badge there, but at least it is DSG & I did centre it up with the TDI badge!

I think that is the only explanation for it. I need to look what badge should be on there, I expect "T30 Highline". Or I could leave it as a talking point/to confuse people...
My 2013 Shuttle SE 140 had Transporter on the left & TD (red) I on the right, vans seem to have a combined badge with T30 102 or similar on the right.
