Re: Espace IV V6 petrol opinions

Hi, I purchased a 3.5 V6 Initiale two months ago and I love it! I had a mkiii 2.2 DCI but it had nothing but engine problems so I didn't want another diesel. A company I used to work for had three 3.0 diesels and had five engines between them in the first year!
I have averaged 24 mpg over the last two months, which is mixed driving and mainly short journeys. I only use V power and have put a cleaner in every time that I filled up. I have removed all the intake pipework and fitted a K & N panel filter, so my driving style has changed accordingly
I am doing a 600 mile round trip next month, so I will get a better idea on MPG then.
As for prices, the V6 seems to command a higher resale value than the diesel!
