My truck did the same thing. It was my fuel pump. I had to take the tank off change the fuel pump out and now it runs like a champ.

check fuel pressure regulator for proper pressure also check MAF sensor. the MAF sensor in VW's are known to get oil on it from running down the intake tube from the PCV valve.
