best take it somewhere to be set up correct mate....it will be worth it in fuel alone
Seems a bit odd that I put in 7.5L and it only lasted me 40km, mix of urban and highway in a 1.6L auto.
I've set up the carbie by following a manual so it idles fine out of gear but in gear its still shacky.
Any ideas on why its useing so much fuel?

take it to get it tuned, get an O2 probe up the pipe, and see what's what.
i like volkswagens
Mk 1 is a 40 litre tank. My Kjet Scirocco gets between 8.7 and 10 litres per 100 Km dependant on the position of the right foot. Its in need of a tune and has a close ratio box fitted ( 3000rpm@100 odd Km/hr )
It can be tuned for improved milage that i do know.
1 tank full is 400 to 400+ Km .
The late Cabrio's have a 52 litre tank.
Lots of MK 1 Scirocco's...
If it aint a MK 1 then it must be a donor car ??
Have a look at the color and texture of the plugs and determine if it isn't leaking fuel anywhere. It shouldn't be hard to figure out if its running rich.
Spark ignition is a threatened species
Biodiesel is the best emission control money cant buy

my golf uses heaps and heaps of fuel aswell but it runs rich as f*** & pretends its a rotary on cold mornings, so i guess there's your answer!
