generation 3 espace petrol or diesel ??

morning people , i have the dosh all sat waiting to go get me a generation 3 espace . but i cant decide whether to get a 2.0 16v petrol manual or get the 2.2 dci manual . now the thing is, its not going to be used as an everyday car here , we kinda only need 1 1/2 cars in this house so its use would be limited. diesel versions are about a grand dearer than the petrol ones and it would take me a long time to recoup that grand on savings in fuel costs etc. what does the 2.0 16v realistically do in mpg's compared to the 2.2 dci ? ( i think its 31 and 38 ) and im not that bothered about resale value as im going to keep it for at least 4 years . whatcar says the 2.0 is not upto it but they are always super critical i think any thoughts people ??
