OH does 1 - 2k per year, but we bought a diesel. The reason is simple. Yes you can do all the sums to figure out at what point it becomes uneconomical but I don't really care.

We had a budget and bought a car that ticked the boxes and was within budget. At that point the money is spent so we are only concerned with day to day running costs.

So the reason for the diesel is because it's easy to drive, tax is cheap and you never get tired of getting 500+ miles between fill ups!

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
