best I ever got was 29, that in a stock bug. My '66 panel got 17-20. I went from that to a new Lincoln Town Car(this is 1989)and got 24 with a/c at 70mph. A VW ain't the way to go for gas mileage. Exclamation

You can get decent mileage if you work at it. You're going to have to purpose build for it though. Look at the mileage motor articles HVWS has been running recently. They got up to 38 mpg I think.

Granted, NOT a baja. But you should be able to get mileage comparable to many modern cars from a bug with minimal effort.

yep. It was a E ticket ride when you're doing 80 or better in a bus and a semi "large car" passes you pulling away. Crosswind, worn steering...oh yeah baby. Lucky to still be here after hijinks like those.
