Right, may sound a daft question but how do you drive a diesel differently to a petrol car ?
I have had my 1.6 16v petrol car for 7 years and done 130k in it and I love the power kicking in at around 5.5k revs - and before that I had a 1.4 8v petrol engine.
But next week i'm getting a 54reg Golf 2.0 TDi (GT 140 version) and want to know how I need to adapt my driving. I've driven a few diesel vans before and an Alfa 2.4JTD but only for a few days at a time so no long-term experience. Obviously the power isn't going to be kicking in at 5.5k revs but what else do I need to know ?
