1. Weight is a fuel hog
A buddy has a diesel Rabbit, its stripped of anything not vital.
No passenger seats, no bumpers, no rain gutters, moon hubcaps, wiper on one side, I mean stripped. Get about 55 mpg with it.
I have an 1981 MB 240D but I am not going to ruin the car for mpg when it already gets 38 highway.
