I'm contemplating spending approx £8k on a 1.9Tdi (56/57) or a bit less on a 1.6 petrol.
I was convinced the 1.9 was the right choice until I did some reading around diesels, never having owned one.
No I am confused....I was attracted by the MPG, tho I only do 10k miles a year, and my daily round trip to work and back is around 30 miles (lots of stop start in traffic)
Presumably I'm still going to get a better MPG out of the diesel no matter what distance is being driven, but all the stuff about the DPF concerns me as it seems my driving is just the sort to cause problems with it.
To be fair, whatever MPG I get is bound to be better than the Fiesta ST I currently own which averages 30 over the 2 years I have had it.
Anyone got any opinions on this?
Thanks in advance!
