Check timing of the engine is right using an engine timing light. Make sure the timing belt or chain isn't worn or slack. The head gasket could also have gone and may need replacing.

What kind of wires did you use? If you used some cheap ones, that is most likely the problem. Get the VW wires if you didn't get them to begin with.

If this is an automatic check the fluid level of the transmission. It sounds like your running low on transmission fluid. Since you have been driving it in this condition and don't seem to be alarmed at the high rpms I would take the vehicle to a transmission shop and have the transmission checked.
I have a V-6 Automatic and a Standard 4 Cylinder and I cruise at 2000 to 2500 and almost never exceed 3000 rpm at any speed. I would bet after you have that transmission fixed your gas mileage will most likely double if not improve more.
