Re: Hi, Im John Hi John..welcome to TFI. You are saying that Annually you drive around 5500km and you are looking at buying a diesel car? Is there any specific reason to look for a diesel car? For your kind of running, a petrol car is recommended what with diesel prices going up anyway. Considering the price difference for a diesel car vs petrol car, with your present running it will take about 7-8 years to recover the premium you pay for a diesel car even with the current disparity in fuel prices.
