Just bin offered a new job which will see me driving 700 miles a week.

How will me 99V 200vi stand upto this? Its currently on 60,000 miles, will it be able to handle this kinda mileage or should I bite the bullet and buy a diesel :s

expect arround 20,000 miles per year regular services should ensure she continues to run tho. my old car i had up to 120,000 miles and it was a petrol, serviced it every 8,000 miles and it still ran smoothly, oil used to come out looking as clean as it went in, and i was doing about 500 miles per week.

I did an average of 300 for £40 in my Vi, thats about 30 mpg

my 306 Tdi does 550 for £50, thats about 45 mpg (there are those that do 55)

If your doing 700 miles a week miles I'd get a diesel.

works out at

Vi = £93 per week = £403 pm = £4836 pa

306 Turbo Diesel = £63 per week = £273 pm = £3276 pa

yeah I will be getting a diesel at some point, but for the first 6 months or so I won't be able to afford it. Worked out on past mpg i'll have to fill up every 3 days :(
