    there is no 3.2 diesel, 3.2 is the petrol.
    3.0cdti vs 1.9cdti 150: -
    Official mpg difference is about 9 mpg overall, but more if you do a lot of town driving (in favour of the smaller engine). Further info can be found at the vauxhall website.
    Performance, 3.0 is a more refined drive with instant low down acceleration. 1.9 has turbo lag up to 1700rpm, but revs better so is nearly as quick overall.

    Urban - 8 mpg less than a 1.9

    Mixed - 10 less than the 1.9

    Long run, no stopping in top gear all the time, at a guess 5 mpg less.

    Official combined figures for both cars are:-
    49.6 (1.9 150bhp)
    40.9 (3.0V6)
    i.e., 8.7 mpg
    (Taken from the following 2 links at Vauxhall’s website): -
    http://vauxhall.co.uk/vx/configurato...TechnicalSpecs
    http://vauxhall.co.uk/vx/configurato...TechnicalSpecs

    I worked this out not long ago when I was deciding between the two cars
    (Based on fuel cost of 96.9p/litre, and the official fuel figures):


    1.9 (150bhp) 20,000miles/year £1,776
    3.0v6 20,000miles/year £2,154

    Or another way to look at it is this, if an extra £20 a week of derv isn't a problem, get the 3.0, I know I would...might....err....will....err....well, I bloomin wants one just for the sound and refinement factors, not sure it will be the right choice for me though doing 400 urban miles a week, on the stretch I'd say it's the only option.
