Can't be mega money though as I can get a C3 for about £2.5k, this is max I really want to spend. I really want a car that is very cheap to run as Im spending hundreds each month on my big old engine car!

Any help would be great ta x

my toyota aygo is about £20 or £25 a year tax, very cheap to run, supposed to do ~9p a mile , depending on fuel prices. I have done around 500 miles off a full tank.

VW bluemotion was good but rare
and the new 1.1diesel Kia Rio (out later this year) is supposed to do 88mpg, tho dont know what a 1.1 Diesel will drive like!!??

Thank you Splat I will go and have a look around for the others see where I get :) x

I had a 307 1.4hdi, 62mpg, air con 5dr + elec pack etc, was a really good car and I'd buy another tommorow, but hard to find one of those unless you dont mind 100k on the clock. Ive been looking at a new rio diesel 9k (new models out later) but you get 7yrs warranty (and £2k discount if you trade a <100k on the clock 2002+ banger in)

(the megane 1.5dci is £30 tax and 64mpg, not too small a car either)

be careful which model it is, some 1.5 dci's are slightly more polluting (heavier maybe) so take it up a tax band

Thanks all, still seems that the C3 is cheapest with lower mileage on the clock compared to the 307.
I can still keep my eye on the others incase a bargain comes along :) x

true, you could also try 207's and 308's they might have lower mileage than the 307's (as long as you check parkers and keep to the 1.4diesel engines)

My i30 1.6CRD premium is £30pa. Obviously out of your price range, but just answering the question.

Inb4 the jealous haters! X)

I went for the C3 in the end, But when I test drove it yesterday I felt it was pretty slow, Is this because im going from a 1.8 petrol to a 1.4 diesel?
Off to pick it up tonight! Hope to be able to save loads on fuel a month now.

You really need someone to answer that?

1.8 v 1.4 is no contest and in general (Not always the case) Petrol v Diesel, Petrol wins.

French v American, American win's.

So to answer you question, Common sense would tell you that the C3's going to be slower, If you didn't know this then perhaps you shouldn't be on the road. Lol

Well tbh I have never had a diesel, so I wasnt sure if they were more powerful or not. I knew the bigger engine has more power but according to google you wouldnt see much of a difference which was why I asked here.

At least I know what to expect from my car then :) Thank you for the little bit sarcastic comment that did help :p

yeah, diesels are more sluggish than their petrol counterparts, even equal engine sizes. Saying that, I see many a 2.0ltr petrol driver driving miss daisy around my way. Winds me up until I overtake them in my crappy diesel!

Well define power, A Diesel will pull more, But tend to be more sluggish and not as responsive as petrol, This is/has changed a little with recent technology and some diesels can feel just as responsive as their petrol variant, However in general a petrol car is still more responsive but I wouldn't know unless I drove one.

In that sense it's probably wrong to try and compare a 1.8 petrol to 1.4 diesel, You will gain more mpg and get into smaller spaces but you won't have as much throttle response etc.

1.4 diesel is probably going to be a nice engine for a car so small, A good power to weight ratio.
