Hi, I am thinking of buying a Honda CR-V and have a budget that should get a 2008 / 9 model. There does not seem to be a huge difference in the price of diesel's vs petrol's. I will be doing approx 10 - 12000 mile a year with a lot of short journeys but also longer trips for holidays, visiting friends and relatives as it would be our main family car. I am trying to decide between trying to track down a decent petrol model or a diesel. Realistically what sort of MPG are petrol owners getting from their CR-V's? Also have many people had DPF or clutch problems with the diesels? Any advice would be greatly received! Thanks, Jeff.
