    Default 3.0 V6 CDTi Taxi

    Spotted one this morning - how much diesel would the driver go through??!!

    I think the consumption in mine is bad for town driving, they must be mad running that as a taxi

    Quite a good choice if it is a driver-owner
    It's a more relaxed drive, than the 1.9 CDTI, but you do pay for it with about 35mpg compared to 40mpg
    However, I would suspect the owner has haggled hard on the price as not many private owners see the advantage to the V6 CDTI

    I'll bet he's moaning all the time about the slurp, if it's manual I bet he's only getting a mid twenty figure and if it's auto just over the twenty figure, my 2.0DTi man used to return between 32 and 39 depending on how many times I got on the motorway, the Superb which is a 1.9 auto gives 25 - 30 averages over a week of cabbing, lovely though they are the 3.0 CDTi is a no no for this job unless it's being used to eat the motorway up all week, as a short tripper I'd say it won't be very eco at all.

    Experience tells me Guyver is correct here, buy at your own risk if miles per counts.
