Petrol or Diesel....

Rainbow Petrol or Diesel....
wondered if any of you had the same petrol/diesel dilemma as my missus is having at the moment....tried to find out some info about this on the net but cant find anything.

she wants a new car...however her job means her travelling around 25-30miles of motorways to work and then upto the same amount driving around the city centre during the day....

now diesels are cheaper on tax...fuel goes further but is more expensive...and typically diesel cars cost more....

soooooooo.....

which car would be better? diesel of petrol?

Dark matter.

"It's the worst signature I've seen. Its mix of homoerotic eulogising and pseudo-philosophical shite makes me sick. Since Hank has had this sig, SLF has gone down the toilet. I hate him. I can't stress that enough. I hope he gets banned." - Kevin Sinfield

Get a diesel with a stop/start engine, best of both worlds

My MPG is 65-70

I don't have a car so I only buy fuel for sniffing and I would definitely say petrol.

What about LPG? Only half the price of petrol.

I'm too cool to have a signature.

If shes driving round the city, would she not be better getting a city car?

I currently have a 60reg Peugeot 107. I do 50 miles a day or 250 a (working) week in it. Can do it all on £35 of petrol.
Petrol prices round here vary from £1.26-£1.28

Corsa is on 0% finance over 5 years, fairly cost effective run around.

I'd certainly go for diesel
