Vibration (strange cure)

had my little alfette a couple of weeks now, 156 1.9 jtd 16v by the way. and since I got her had some intermittent vibration sometimes while cruising sometimes when setting off, anyhoo, read loads of threads on here to see what the problem might be and really it could be quite a number of things from worst case scenario, drive shafts, gearbox, clutch or wheel bearings to best case wheel balancing etc...after recouping the initial price for the car, I finally afforded to put a full tank of diesel in, and low and behold I have covered a hundred miles since the said fill up without a single vibration. my question is does anyone know why this would be? and has the extra weight of the fuel stabilised something. because I am rather on the thought line that when the needle starts to drop again the problem will return infact I am 99% sure it will!! any suggestions fellow car lovers?

If it returns on low fuel perhaps you have an out of balance rear wheel but tbh it's a bit of a mistery.
