Sorry, I know this has been beaten to death... I've searched and could not find the answer...
How many miles per gallon does a stock '84 Rabbit GTI from the factory get?
(I'm looking for the numbers that appeared on the sticker when the car was bought new, from the EPA?)
I'm told I have an early production '84, also has 4K trans.
this info. would be much appreciated.... thanks.

Per the 1984 VW Rabbit sales brochure, the numbers were 26 EPA, 36 highway.

speed limit was 55 back then in most areas

Re: mpg? >> '84 Rabbit GTI (rabbitgremlin)

thanks everyone for the responses....
So I'm looking at an estimated 26 city and 36 highway...
I now get about 25 mpg combined city/ highway... mostly city driving for me, now that I have a baseline I can look over my CIS to make sure things are up to spec. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
