So following on from my other post my conundrum is which fuel in 2019?
I find myself Confused and a little apprehensive and if im honest a tad scared 🙁
I have to admit after seeing a BMW X1 I really liked it but sports seats and more wheel than tyre is not for me 🙁
I like my comfort 🙂
I had been hanging out for a Diesel as its all ive driven for the last 4 cars but then everything came crashing down 🙁
I became more aware that diesels were no longer in favour but was then assured by many a dealer that it was only older diesels i should worry about……………..
Living not far from Bristol they are now talking of banning Diesels from the town centre as are many other places.
So I feel like this
To me Petrol is too expensive as my parents live the other end of the country and I often make that trip I use my car for around 15000 miles each year.
Im used to the 50mpg+ from a diesel and although the x1 Petrol promises late 40’s in reality I know its more likely to be in the 30’s.
Id sign on the dotted line tomorrow for a diesel but im scared I wont be able to drive it where i need to use it 🙁 Likewise I fear if I go for Petrol I wont be able in the long run to afford the consumption 🙁
Nobody is telling us what we really need to know?
Will Blue badge or motability customers be exempt from diesel bans? Is it just older diesels or will even the new ones end up not fit for purpose after legislation?
And if the goalposts are moved mid lease where does it leave me?
I know deep down if I did order diesel it would most probably be the last but am I safe going diesel for the next three years?
Anyone here just ordered a diesel or just taken delivery?
Any help or thoughts appreciated.
I just feel a little like if i get the diesel will itr be the wrong decision? Or likewise if i go Petrol will that be the wrong decision?
