Re: diesel or petrol - Advice required

I had 2 diesels, one after the other a Mk1 & Mk2 Lag both 2.2 turbos The Mk1 was pretty much trouble free at the time I had the MK1 I was travelling throughout mainly England.

I changed both the job and the car, the working location was 10 miles of mixed driving town & dual carriageway there and back. During this time I had to have for the Mk2 Lag 3 or 4 new EGRs & one new turbo . Thank Gawd it was under warranty during this time, when the warranty came to a conclusion so did the car, I'm back on petrol now.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
