I believe it was originally rated at about 35mpg. If the vehicle has been well maintained, I would expect to at least see 30mpg even now.

I had a 1957 and a 1965 Beetle. They both averaged about 28 MPG. But I drove them both pretty hard.

Hard to geuss. Air-cooled engines tend to vary alot more than they ought to. A Type 4 engine can range from 20-40mpg depending on carb. setup. Dunno how much this applies to Type 1 and 2's but I'd assume it's similar.
