the 1.9 golf is thirsty as hell, And most of my miles are motorway miles.

The shit thing about the 1.9 is it only has 5 gears, so when driving up to Dublin / Belfast your running at over 3000 revs for over 4 hours. Its a disaster. It takes a full fill to go up and down. Thats about 70 quid to do 800km. I dont think thats too good, Did it a few times in a Peugeot, and it far more ecnomical if you are doing plenty of motorway miles. The same 70quid fill, got me up and down with just short of a quater tank left over.
