Diesel in our economy but I have to say Petrol was the true power I loved until some smart German company:crazy: proved petrol can be beaten in race conditions.
You cant beat the noise of a race tuned petrol car screaming:d

Good question!

Hmmm at first i prefered a diesel car, after a while I came to the conclusion that is better a car with gasoline engine, if you go through many miles on the car can put on it a gass installation.

Gas is much cheaper and maintenance like oil and filters more cheaper to.

Having owned both - with diesel being the latter - I doubt I'll ever go back to petrol. I like the low rev tractability of the Diesel engine over the petrol.
Torque over bhp every time.
How many drivers actually use all the bhp on offer as its a figure quoted at the upper end of the rev range whereas most will use all of the available torque accelerating between 40 - 60 mph.
I may be biased but ho hum.

It has to be petrol for me, although my 2.0 16v Espace has the performance of a lethargic slug and crappy fuel consumption it also doesn't have a turbo! I might spend more on petrol but I don't spend anything on EGR valves, turbos, engines.....
