Re: diesel or petrol - Advice required

Yes diesels do undoubtedly have more low down torque but modern diesels are being strangled by emissions systems that require long runs to recharge, Citroen/Peugeots FAP system springs to mind and EGR valves don't like stop/start driving, they have a nasty tendency to clog up and cause CEL's on the dash.
