Petrol vs diesel for town driving  

There are a few variables for a driver to consider when choosing whether to driver a petrol or diesel vehicle. One important factor to bear in mind is the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) that modern diesel vehicles are equipped with. The filters suit long distance driving, they have a self-cleansing software whereby after long journeys they regenerate. However, if you mainly drive around town, the filters can get clogged as the regeneration process does not have time to begin.
