personally i wouldnt get a 1.8 16v as they have a funny torque curve so all the power is at silly high rpm.

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.

I get around 35mpg with a lot of town driving, on the motorway its easy to do 45mpg, and had over 50 out of it if you sit at 65mph lol

although bear in mind mines in a mk3 passat which may have longer gear ratios than a mk2 golf gti.

Good motorway engine too, mine will easily pull over 100mph ;) not that ive tried lol
