One of the two cars we own is a diesel and getting on in years now. I have had a number of diesels over the years and love the torque they deliver even from way down the power band. However, it appears the tide is fast turning against diesel cars with many towns and cities across the world and here in the UK looking to impose pretty heavy charges on them for entering city/town centres etc. due to pollution concerns. I notice that sales of new diesel cars have dropped dramatically over the last twelve months and residuals are going the same way. As a private buyer would you now consider/be brave enough to make your next car purchase a diesel or would you play safe and opt for petrol?
