Parkers list mpg on a 2.0 as being between 19 - 34, compared to the 2.2dT's 27 - 44. Both have 115bhp but with the dT's having more low-down torque, it probably would give the 2.0 a good run.

I can't really compare engines, but I've just this week bought a 1997 2.2dT and its pretty nippy - and that's with it being due a full service, which I'm planning on doing today!

The dCi's (2000-onwards) have 130bhp with the gen 4's having 150 I think.
