Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
Lead was removed from gasoline in the united states in 1979 so i dont think that is the problem more than likely you are experiencing a secondary misfire like a faulty spark plug or spark plug wires if the vehicle has not had a tune up in a while you might start there

SOURCE: 1995 LINCOLN WONT START
Perhaps when the fuel pump was replaced, the filter was not replaced, or the dirt in the tank was not cleaned out. Sometimes these problems are a result of the filter getting clogged up and fuel is not able to reach the fuel rail. The car sits for a while, the sediment falls from the filter, it then starts and runs for a time, all the while, little by little, the sediment recollects and starves the fuel rail again.

It's very possible the fuel pump is going out. Same thing happened on my 2001 New Beetle about 6 weeks ago, until it finally would not start at all. I have the software and dongle for reading the computer codes, and the failure modes described led me to the fuel pump.
Depending on how handy you are, you can remove the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail in the engine compartment. Cover the regulator base on the fuel rail with a rag, and have someone turn the key on for 1-5 seconds and note if fuel consistently pumps out of the base. BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT HAVE ANY OPEN FLAMES OR SPARK IN THE AREA. Fuel is flammable, and there may be significant amounts pumped from the fuel rail.
