I have an average of 51.4 imperial MPG (~44 US) on our '85 Jetta NA, worst tank 46,
best 56. The '85 Jetta TD used to do considerably better, even at the end of its days,
average of ~58, best of 62 with 1100kms on a tank! Even towing a boat, the TD
would only drop to high 40s. The last tank on the NA was the lowest ever at 46, so I
need to monitor this I guess. Could be my wife's ..um... driving style. Time to reduce
the fuelling again I guess. :-)
