The speed resistor pack beside the fan motor is fried and not supplying power to the motor. Need to remove and check with a digital VOM for resistance.

There are a number of reasons this can be happening here. The first to check would be the following...
1) Spark Plugs I have a Jetta myself and had similar problems. The spark plugs were brand new, producing a perfect spark, but my car kept sputtering and misfiring. Come to find out, Volkswagens are very picky with the gapping on the spark plugs. You should try removing them and re-gapping each one to 0.33". Just try to get as close to that as possible. Never trust spark plugs if they state they came pre-gapped.
2) Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR) If the spark plugs did not fix the issues for you, then it could be your FPR. Sometimes the hoses to the FPR rot over time and need to be replaced. If that is not the case, then the regulator itself might need to be replaced. Basically the FPR is what regulates the amount of fuel that is going to the engine.
3) Dirty Fuel Injectors Over time, fuel injectors do get dirty. You might want to have them professionally cleaned if the above has not helped any.
4) Scan for Codes The best thing you can do is scan for codes. Most auto part stores like Advance Auto and Autozone have the code scanners and will scan your car for free. They will be able to pull any issues from the computer even if your check engine light is not on. This should give you more information to pinpoint any issues. If you have this done and are confused about the codes, I would be more than happy to help you determine the issues.

Make sure the tranny fluid level is good (check with eng running) a ****/kick is felt when valves start to stick due to contamanation, moisture, dirty fluid, lack of fulid or if the valves start to leak.

I am assuming that this is an automatic transmission and it would indicate that that the transmission is not shifting into high gear. The normal rpm range at 100km should be 1800 -2200 rpm's. A visit to the transmission shop would be my recommendation.

As a modern car it will run fine on any unleaded gas/petrol and the engine will self-adjust it's ignition timing to suit.

But some Passat variants can additionally take advantage of Super Unleaded, it's a total waste of money and offer no benefits at all for most models. As you haven't given further details of your exact Passat variant I cannot be any more specific, but the recommended grade is usually on a label inside the tank filler door.

If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Keep in mind that a code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty spark plugs or wires
* Faulty coil (pack)
* Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
* Faulty fuel injector(s)
* Burned exhaust valve
* Faulty catalytic converter(s)
* Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
* Faulty camshaft position sensor
* Defective computer
