Every Type 2 (T3) does ~20mpg regardless of engine

if you listen here anything from 15 to 25 ,

im surprised none of the diesel fantasists have jumped in with their 50mpg claims yet ..... ( its not that they do 50mpg, its that the miles take much longer so they burn it much slower)

Hi, thanks for replies+ Always liked to believe I got about 25 mpg from my 1.9 wbx DF ( have run it for 12 years) ,probably wishful thinking! Might have to change engine soon so wondered if I had a second hand DG installed,.78 bhp,I would get slightly better fuel economy? Cheers 1983/84 westfalia joker poptop!
