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!
