    About 60 a day, in the GTI-6/MR2/350Z/S13/207 depending on whats working and what I fancy that day. :)

    Buying diesels to save money is false economy as you just go mad waiting to go past artics instead.

    When I used to daily drive my Jaguar XJ6 on the 6 mile trip to work, with 2 cold starts in 12 miles the big old 4.2 would down about a gallon of juice, which was ridiculous. Cool, but ridiculous.

    as for a diesel daily there isnt any point for me as most of that is usually crawling/stationary in traffic and no matter what car you own gets 0 mpg when stationary and engine on

    Diesels use a lot less fuel when idling than a petrol engine though

    Nothing obviously but your using less fuel sitting still in a diesel than you are in a petrol so your point isn't really valid.
