So after all the fun of a rebuild with 351 c studs, a 1.5 head I rebuilt, and pocket ported, and file fit oversizes rings I drove 1200 miles to nevada. Averaged 63mpg. cost me like 70 bucks to drive to my other future home. Went slower though, about 60 mph. Helps a lot with mpg. leaned out the ip to the point of near power loss and set pressure at about 40 psi at fast idle. These cars are a real joy to own. My insurance is only 90 bucks a year too. love it... Will never sell it unless fuel is .50 cents a gollon, or I invent anti gravity and build a hover car..

I just got a 1978 Rabbit but has 1981-1983 1.6D Currently getting IP rebuilt and cam checked out (broke where cam lock goes). Having a blast learning about VW's. Did you ad the skirts to the rear wheels on your pic?
