    When my wife and I had the same engine in a Jetta we got 24 mpg on tanks that were mostly city commuting and barely made 30 on open roads.

    Wow - glad commenting is back (probably jinxed it by saying...). The Beetle will end up with a lifetime average of 25, like the GTI did. That's pretty damn good, considering the power. My GTI will do 32 on the open road at 70.

    "...and our staff's occasionally leaden feet." Is somebody's nose getting longer?
