Hope the results arent good really cos i might be tempting myself with gettin one,do a lot of miles in my motor but just wondering if the differance is really that great(seen a black gti today and it was mint 18s on it..
He means you pay more for the diesel car over the petrol car, therefore diesel costing you more (especailly with diesel costing more per litre) over buying and running a petrol car over average mileage. But, you will recoup some of those costs when you come to sell your diesel car as it will still hold more value, normally a lot more value than a petrol car.
it just depends if the cost of running the diesel (initial extra on
purchase price) and the extra per litre is out weighed by the resale
value at the end and the saving through increased MPG. Im starting to
become a little sceptical that running a diesel is cheaper than a
petrol to make it signicant.
I travel about 25 miles to work and back each day and I'm getting 27/28mpg pretty much everytime. That's with a blast down a by-pass for a few miles and then along country roads being generous with the right pedal.
Driving sensibly (as I did during the first 1000miles) returns 35mpg absolute max.
Must say lookin at these figures compared to what i get 44 around town-motorway about 48 thats about 80 mph like,theres not much in it,might just get a quote on my insurance tommorow for the gti..See what the difference is. I dont know just not satisfied with anything-thats what the missus just said ,Make what you will with that one.
