    1996 GTI low top speed when tank is low

    My friend has a 1996 GTi that runs fine when the gas tank is full but when it gets to half tank or lower it will only go 20-25 mph.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    have you guys read the plugs ??
    im suspecting a lean condition as the tank gets emptier the harder the fuel pump works to draw fuel.
    when were the carbs last rebuilt ??
