Last year I got a car which uses Adblue (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) to keep emissions legal and recently it started telling me it needed a refill (takes about 12 litres from empty). Franchised dealer want…

I have nothing fundamental against diesels, but when it requires a filtering system that clogs up, a fuel-sensitive engine map and some added chemical to get them to be "good" to the environment, I honestly think that changing to a petrol is the overall more economical option.
Buying and running a diesel car will be more expensive unless you do over 10k miles per year but add the DPF fluids and DPF units that require maintenance it is in my opinion economically not competitive with other fuels.
That's true if you are buying new and letting a dealer service the car but buying second hand and looking after it yourself is a different ball game. Most people who buy second hand have a budget, same as new I guess but most people I know who have new cars are not buying them, they are renting them or they have a company car. Whilst renting may be an option for me in the future all of my cars to date have been purchased. I prefer large cars and as we all know large petrol cars are more rare these days because diesel cars fare better on CO2 emissions and are less in road tax. This is improving with newer cars but the 10,000 miles a year to benefit had been a dealer's myth for years. It depends on each individual's needs and what they want from a car. If my car was a 2 litre petrol it would be another £80.00 a year to tax. A friend of mine got a bit of a shock when she bought a Mazda RX-8. £400.00 a year to tax!! Less money going to the government can only be a good thing for me. My present car was about £1,200.00 more than the nearest petrol rival. I have had my car 4 years now so that's £300.00 a year extra. It had one service a year before I started doing it myself. Cost of service £179.99. I just rang for a service for my wife's 3 year old Fiesta 1.2 zetec, £199.99 !! The only cost difference on my car over a petrol is the oil is more expensive, nothing else. Service schedule is the same. My car does 45mpg round town and 60mpg on a run, that's at least 20% increase over the petrol rival and possibly more if driven hard. Based on just 8,000 miles a year my fuel will cost about £765.00 based on an average of 50mpg at £1.05 per litre. A petrol would cost me another £160.00 but add the extra cost in road tax that's £240.00. So yes, my diesel is costing me £60.00 a year more but I guarantee when I come to sell it I will get that back and more besides compared with a petrol.
There are advantages for both but I do agree that petrol is becoming more appealing in the long run.
I was a diesel fan until one day my ford focus went into limp mode and would not accelerate. The DPF was clogged up and a replacement would cost over £500. The dealer told me that the DPF units have a life of 70-80k miles. I changed to petrol and it costs me only about £2 more a week in fuel and tax is £100 more. I have noticed that there is less wear on tyres and my break shoes last longer which I can only put down to the lighter petrol car compared to the heavier diesel. There is also less noise and vibration compared to the diesel. The major costs in a lifetime of a car will be repair bills and with the imperfect emission control measures on modern diesel cars I am not sure these will be trouble free in the long run.

Overwhelmingly the major cost of running a car is depreciaton. Fuel, service, etc. costs are minor in comparison.
