    Welcome to the site. You can tell the difference as to where the oil filler cap is situated. I am not sure of the correct answer though. But someone will be along to correct us.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    150's have a red "i" in the CDTi, 120's don't. That's providing of course if no one has debadged it or stuck a fake red "i" on and pretending it's a 150.

    If you look at the engine block, if you have a 150 the oil filler cap will sit on the middle right and if you have the 120 it will sit on the bottom left.

    and as said the oil filler cap will be to the far left as you look and the ti in the cdti will be red and you will have a dohc under your engine cover.
