Ok Ferguson you asked. :
When I first got the 1984 Rabbit Turbo 1.6L five on the floor.(7A) --- nice to look at light
metallic blue --- but a bondoqeen .
It was so wild that I had troubles driving it ---man what power , man what
smoke. As the turbo spooled up it was like hitting an afterburner.
Now ? she starts good and purrs like a kitten. and NO smoke.
First thing I did was to pull the line from Spaceship to manifold. (still off)
Then I changed nozzles and did a Hillbilly tune-up job. Reducing fueling
to a point of absolutely minimum.
One more thing I use 50 PSI in front tires and 40 rear.
80 MPH ? in this configuration ? I doubt it.But I carry the wrenches and to
increase fueling takes a couple of minutes , on the side of the road.
80 Km/h is maximum here. But I do 100 quite often.
Next nice day I shall take a bottle and measure mileage exactly and let
you know.. Your mileage sounds pretty good to me.
