Got a Mondeo TD as my runabout - 45-50 mpg round town and very reliable. Only drawback is its slow (even though I have wound the boost out a little
) and a bit noisy on tickover.
Went to rockingham over the weekend and back on a smidge over £20 of fuel - how many petrol cars would do that?
As mentioned above, the even newer TDs are quick too, especially the VW's
I had one of the new 3.0 V6 TD Vectras last week - 180bhp, 0-60 in 8.3 and a top speed of 140mph (which it was rude no to test
Bit "chuggy" at tickover, but open the trottle, and it made a nice V6 roar, and had one of the biggest turbos Ive seen on a diesel road car!!!!
