Around Central Scotland it’s about 10-11p more expensive than petrol so I’m not even sure if the better fuel economy from the diesel pays for itself over a tank of fuel. I must admit though i do like the torque from a turbo Diesel engine, i get nice mid range pull.

Good point, also when you take in the extra cost of a diesel to buy, say an extra 2k and if you keep the car for 3 years you have to do a lot of miles to get your money back, it’s always put me off diesels.
