Just started! '98 Jetta TDI

I'm new to the board. I am finally getting a little out of my speed craze. I used to drive a turbo'd VR6 Jetta that got nearly 12mpg daily and now that I drive 140 miles round trip three days a week that had to go.

I bought a Jetta TDI that is getting an even 45mpg every tank with no mods and I'm hoping to up that fairly soon. I've gone through about six tanks now and I want to hit at least 55mpg, more would just be icing on the cake.

I do a lot of car work. I turbo'd my other car, have replaced almost everything from valve springs to brakes, to bearings, to transmissions and clutches, and to gas tanks. I've also fabricated up brackets and boost piping with my welder.
