what is your prefered fuel type and why?

in my opinion there is no difference in running cost. i`ll explain

every monday i put £40 petrol into my laguna for the week .. when i had the diesel 2.0td BMW i still ended up putting £40 a week in ..

in kent there is about 8p diff between petrol and diesel, now i don`t know if having a renault diesel would make any difference !!

if in doubt, wd40 out !!

i think it comes down to how you drive i can get 60 odd mpg out of the lag sometimes dont think i could get that in a petrol . fuels seems exspensive in kent up here its about 3p difference

The most I've ever got out of mine is about 54mpg and mines a diesel but I can't help having a heavy foot at times I just love the performance of my car Wink

i do think the lagunas have quite a bit of torque , even my 120bhp non turbo engine pulls nice in 5th, when overtaking i don`t need to drop down a gear ... love the look on the chavs face when this huge renault flies past them lol

Yeah I beat a BMW 1 series but he had to pull in behind me as my lane was running out we were like neck and neck with each other and then the police coming the other way, god that was a close one. Then after the lane went into like a dual carriage way again think he got pissed off and drove fast afterwards I went to normal speed as at the time was hoping the police didn't come back in-which they didn't thank god.

Can't say it any better myself it's not that German cars are s*** it's the people that are s*** at driving and puts you off them, plus I find them very bland inside and out very boring to be honest.
