Re: Bogging when accelerating in top gear

>47-50 mpg? Wow, my 94 RS (actually, an early '93 build) never came close to
that, even when new.

Do you live at high altitude?

Or do you just always obey the speed limit? ;)

If not I'd suspect that maybe you are running lean. Clogged fuel filter is a

why I would do such a crazy thing.
