I would either get a 2.0 16v but youre looking at around 30-35 mpg out of one of those, or a 1.8 8v, but get the 112bhp GTi engine with code PB. Dont bother with the RP one its only 90bhp.

The PB engine actually has more torque lower down so produces more BHP in the rev range its actually going to be used in than the 1.8 16v, so unless you want to rev the pants off a 15+ year old engine the PB would be a better bet.
Did the 8v engines change in a particular year?
