Ok guys I'm at the stage of finding I really hate my diesel titanium engine not the actual car. I have found a zetec s in Lancashire that I quite like and it's a 1.8 petrol which is a boost as its a petrol and b slightly more power. Should I go for it as its about same milage as my car and will reduce my finance. Also had a good few ideas on mod I want to do to it but don't even have it yet

tune your diesel,

More power than the 1.8 petrol and more mpg

You can always fit a Zs body to your existing motor,

Blank egr, it induction filter,2.5" exhaust, remap and codered: intercooler.

You diesel will then be very responsive with almost zero lag.

A 1.8 petrol is fairly thirsty on fuel mine only did about 33mpg on mixed use.

sounds about right for mine too.

By comparison my Toyota Avensis estate with a 2.2 turbo-diesel (bigger, heavier & more powerful car) averaged around 42-45mpg.

If you are doing average mileage it's going to cost you £hundreds more in fuel per year.

I just feel that you can't do as much with a diesel. And mpg I'm just Getting 40mpg I know this is good about the city but I was originally looking at an st as only do about 20 miles a day if I'm lucky and I also don't like the silver titanium with zetec s bodykit and there is one in torry (area I stay) I just feel that a petrol will sound better and since it's basic compared to the titanium I can modify it so I'm happy with it.

I agree with the guys on this 1

I originally wanted a diesel but ended up with a 1.8 petrol now I wish I had the patience to wait for a diesel coz there aint much you can do to a petrol without a turbo or supercharger on it

But diesel on the other hand lot can be done

I just got a 1.6 petrol, at the time of buying it i always said i'd never buy a deisel. N all the 1.6 deisels around at the time needed a new turbo.

However i've ended up doing mainly motorway driving n now may end up in a job where i need to drive my own car all over the country.

So i'm really starting to wish i'd went for the 1.8 deisel n had it re-mapped.

Like everyone says there really isnt much you can do to a petrol engine without spending silly money

I just feel that a petrol sounds better than the diesel and with paint chipping off and strange orange spots appearing on the paint I just don't want to keep it
