    Diesels generally use higher-amp batteries than petrols, and need a bigger alternator to charge them. Largest standard on the 3.0CDTI I think is about 140/150 amps.

    My Sri has a 100 amp but some 2.2 petrols have the 120amp. Its hard to tell without getting the manifold off but if the two halfs of the alternator interlink on another than its the 100, but if the two halfs just butt up against each other then its the 120. Hope thats of some help.
