Hi everyone, I'm new here and I just got a 71 Beetle. I have an issue we can't figure out. It's starts and it idles and it takes off fine in 1st gear bit as soon as I shift to 2nd it starts bogging down like it's out of gas. It is not out of gas though. Any suggestions?

Hi, is it possible that you could have bad fuel or rust in the tank? Did someone install an in-line fuel filter that could be clogged?

Could be any number of things causing your problem. Try this first, loosen or remove your gas tank cap and see if it bogs on you. If it doesn't your tank breather is plugged creating a vacuum in the tank thus stopping the fuel flow.
