Cruise control isn't likely to be the problem and is usually better than your foot at controlling speed unless your in hilly country, particularly rolling hills.

The MK3 FF is good to great at mileage if you can cruise but if you are stuck in stop-and-go driving the mileage really drops off the table. I can drive a section of city roads with a speed limit of 35-40mph and get over 40mpg if, IF I can avoid traffic lights and stop-and-go, but if I hit the lights badly or the traffic is bad the mileage can drop down towards 20mpg -- OVER THE SAME STRETCH OF ROAD.
