    Fuel milage not as good as hoped

    Don’t know about the “new ones” but my 85 Golf non turbo model ( first year Golf) needed to be in mid to higher RPM band for best mileage NO LUGGING it or mileage suffered badly , used it to commute 150 miles a day to and from the mountains to valley about 4500 ft. Elevation . Ran like a striped Azz ape if it was again in upper RPM bands .. it died a sad death when I lent it to a woman who was down n out and needed transportation ( same type drive as mine) she lugged it and pulled the prechanbers out of two cylinders and a third was on it way out but didn’t make it. I averaged 42 mpg with that commute. play with drive style and see what happens.

    Long drive tomorrow

    Joe Baker City Area is not for the weak of heart either , ice / snow and before La Grande on that hill it gets hairy also I’ve many times in winter travels had severe winter roads , and probably the most white knuckle drive of my life near Baker City towing very heavy so do your homework Buddy
