The following link is not VW specific but it does allow the user to find out the expected MPG for any make and model from 1984 to the present. The only VW model that this site covers that is also covered by The Samba is the Vanagon.

Just saw this, the awning he made for us survived Hurricane Matthew!
(albeit 30 miles inland kept winds under 100, pretty sure)

You should consider listing The Bug House in Virginia Beach. They've been around since 1983 and always serviced my van parts needs when I lived in that area. You can call and order from them. Pretty awesome guys.

i think the faq is missing some important literature, like this manual for the digijet (83-85) https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=627901

(which also contains a link to the pro-training manual)
