Plus I have to ask why would you buy a diesel if your mileage is so low and more to the point that distance covered is hardly going to impact your finances if you can afford a brand new 30k car in the first place
I bought the deisel mainly due to the urban mpg quoted at 52 mpg which looked great!! Although I was expecting 40 at least. Tend to drive 2-3 300 mile trips (both ways) to Birmingham on a regular basis every month so thought the ED Auto best suited my needs. I am hoping that as the weather begins to improve, and the temps rise, warm up time will decrease and car will return a better mpg. Fingers crossed!!
