My 2003 VW 2.0 golf uses 51 litres (full tank)
There’s probably a misfire in the cylinders. Have the computer scanned for error codes. You may need a new mass air flow sensor, oxygen sensors, spark plugs and ignition coils. The smell is most likely burning fuel as the car tries to inject more fuel to compensate for the misfire.

1999 vw beetle window seal leak
clean out the drain holes at the bottom of the door
normally 3 slots near the edge of the door
next get a sheet of clear plastic and using a good sealant adhesive stick the plastic around every opening of the inner panel of the door
That stops water splashing out of the holes against the trim and running into the car
tube of sealer , sheet of plastic and your time

Golf diesel 2003 keeps stopping randomly no diagnostic faults logged
When you say shopping you mean Stalling right. If yes then the usual cause is a failing Relay 109 which is the main power relay . The early golf had a grey relay which failed due to dry solder joints etc the modified black relay was issued to elevate the issue.
Relay 109 supplies power to these ,
Glow plug relay
- Fuse 32
Fuel quantity adjuster
- Fuse 34
Cold start injector
Waste gate bypass regulator valve (N75)
Change over valve (N239)
EGR vacuum regulator valve (N18)
Mass air flow sensor (G70)
- Fuse 43
Clutch vacuum vent valve (if equipped)
Brake vacuum vent valve
Relays for preheating coolant (if equipped)
Crankcase ventilation heating element
The ECM supplies power (and sometime ground as well) for:
Fuel cutoff valve
Cruise control switch
Manifold (intake) air pressure/Intake air temperature sensor
Needle lift sensor
Engine speed sensor
Engine coolant sensor
Closed throttle position switch (part of "go" pedal)
Kickdown switch (part of "go" pedal)
Throttle position switch (part of "go" pedal)
Fuel temperature sensor
Modulating piston displacement sensor
The ECM also communicates to the instrument cluster electronics and transmission control module (on automatics).
As a result of this, you can see why if the relay starts to cause power to flicker, or voltage drops, for all of these components, the results can be "unpredicatable" and none of them desireable.

2003 VW GOLF REAR door wont open
The rear door lock actuator has failed in the door locking unit this is a common problem you can manually unlock the door to replace the latch if you didn't have the deadlocking on if you cant try pressing the locking button twice so when the car is locked the flashing red light is not blinking ie off on the drivers. Doing this usually causes the faulty lock to release the dead locking so you can pull the inside handle to unlock the door.
