Re: diesel or petrol - Advice required

I think most points have been covered (mpg, clogged filters etc) but that's no reason for me not to add my preference (and I think that's what this sort of decision mostly comes down to), I'm a petrol chap every time, I know my Espace would be faster and perhaps return a better MPG with a diesel, but having done a bit of research into Renault and their turbo 's I think I'm happier paying a bit more in everyday running costs without having the niggling worry that the inevitable catastrophe is getting closer under the bonnet.

But if you''re happy with the whole turbo diesel thing then I reckon it just comes down to test driving both variants and seeing which you like best!
