Got my first petrol car in 30 years last year.

Very happy indeed.

That makes your passat about £2.40 per hundred miles cheaper to run than the Skoda.

Till the DPF/EGR or DMF goes on the diesel, and remember its double the cost to service almost


is the 1.5 TFSi a chain cam 250k miles, belts are 100 or 5 years?

not had it on a run, just urban so far

But If your doing around 25'000 miles a year your saving some £650 a year by running a diesel.....that offsets the other costs.
