I have the 2.2dt Grand and am getting 80 miles to a tenner mostly short runs(school/shopping) But I do drive it softly if I had a heavy right foot it would probably be 50 to a tenner

I would agree with Whatcar in that the 2.0 petrol is underpowered for this size bear in mind they weigh 1700kg empty.How heavy is a Lag with the same engine?

A well looked after DCi should get more mpg and like Nick said the service interval is longer(although I would still change the oil every 5000 miles)

The choice is yours but I'm sure you will kick yourself if you buy the petrol without test driving one of each and see the difference yourself.

I wear the trousers in our house

She just tells me what colour :D
