Trying to figure this out...

My 06 tdi on startup with ac on (heat!!!) recirculate off smells like exhaust inside the car. I dont notice it at my 3 stop signs within 1.5 miles of the highway, after 11 miles on the highway, it smells like exhaust at the red light.

It seems to be more noticeable in the cold weather we've had lately (lows in the 20s highs in the 30-40s).

Bought the beetle at 87k miles, now has almost 95k in 6 months. I run murphy diesel (20+ cents per gallon cheaper) with diesel kleen cetane boost in the silver bottle. Last tank was my best at 42 mpg, the 2 previous weeks i had 2 days each week with 150 mile commutes instead of my normal 30 with 44 mpg those weeks.

Hard to say, but I would check to see if you have a leaky EGR valve... that's my guess.
