What 5 speed do you have installed in your rabbit? I have a CHD and have only driven about two tankfuls. I get about 36 mpg, but I have never had my injectors tested or my valves adjusted. Of course there are "other" modifications to the NA system; modified IP, 180/60/14 wheels and tires, larger exhaust, 10 pound flywheel and larger intake hose on a later model intake, all on a 1982 pickup.
Drives like my 1st 75 rabbit gasser and takes the hill in my part of texas pretty well.

"Diesel fans, no matter what you say on your blog, your old soot-spewing
Rabbit will not touch those hybrids’ 40-50 m.p.g. in low-speed traffic."
I dunno, Until I put the 5 speed in the Rabbit it ALWAYS made better
putzing around town than it did on the highway. :-)
