Should I change my Skoda Octavia for better economy?

Hi, I've a 2010 Skoda Octavia RS 2.0-litre diesel and thinking of changing to a 2011/2012 1.6 diesel Octavia. Just wondering is there much difference in terms of mpg or would I just be better off keeping the RS? I do about 45,000km per year mostly on motorway so reason for thinking of changing are the high fuel costs.

James, Whitehall

Should my wife trade in her Passat for a diesel version?

Should my wife trade in her 2008 Volkswagen Passat 1.4 TSI petrol for a more economical diesel car? My wife loves her Highline Passat, with 130,000km on the clock, but is wondering should she get something newer with similar spec (she's fond of the heated leather seats!). She uses it for work all around the county and also school runs etc for two young kids. What do you recommend?

Thanks

Are 1.2-litre diesel engines economical?

Hi there,

What would be a typical mpg from a 2009 Polo 1.4 TDI if you're a steady and careful driver? What do you think about the 1.2 TDI engines? Are they too small to get good mpg? All the websites that deal with cars' mpg show 1.6 as being the most economical. Is this changing at all?

Regards David
