We do a mixture of shorter and longer trips. I think as long as you do some longer ones you'll be ok. We had a seat 1.9 diesel before and used to get a clear out cloud of black soot sometimes. Haven't noticed it with the cactus diesel.GarryH said:My other dilema is petrol or diesel? Am used to 2.0L Hdi but worry about all the short journeys dpf variable vane turbo etc
Yeah I hate those DPF filters - not a good idea for people who mostly do city driving. I know of one bloke who was sold a small delivery van with one on (as I think all diesels have them now) he was sold it as a good city car for lots of drops and of course the DPF filter blogged and eventually broke and it was something like £2000 to replace....... he took the dealer to court over it.GarryH said:My other dilema is petrol or diesel?

The puretech engine is a nice engine by all accounts and won awards.GarryH said:Am kinda leaning toward the diesel, as I understand it the Ad blue helps with the re gen burn so should be less of a problem than the two Hdi's I have now. I like the idea of the Purtech engine but the real life mpg figures seem average to poor.
