   After reading this following post, i won't go for diesel.

http://forum.qashqaiclub.co.uk/dpf-problems_topic1152.html

Is there any big difference b/w 1.6 petrol and 2.0 petrol engine from mpg point of view? If i am driving within the city then would 1.6 give better mpg?




If you are going for an 07 - 09 model as you said earlier, it won't have a dpf. The first dpf fitted the 1.5dci was in 2010.   The 2 litre had it earlier.

Been repairing and selling them for years, usually around five year old examples and upwards I ( although maybe not other's ) have found the 1.5 Dci to be the most problomatic as it got older and higher mileage, the early 2.0 DCi pretty much bulletproof, and the 1.6 and 2.0 petrol both seen for mechanical / emission faults much less than the Diesel alternatives, I'd say, based only on through traffic in my workshop that the 1.6 petrol has fared the best. 

That said, up until very recently (early 2018 ) it was always the diesels that outsold the petrol's secondhand, fast forward to now (Sept 2018) and I, and many used SUV dealers i know are struggling to sell "any" of their diesel stock such is the worry among the public with daily "Death of Diesel" scare stories in the press and online, and I cannot get enough decent Petrol Qashqai's right now (especially 1.6 ) to satisfy demand, whilst my "Diesel" variants sit unwanted and unloved on the forecourt......

Make your own mind up of course, it's what suits your needs in the end that should determine your choice. Thumbs Up

Just picked up an early J10 1.6 petrol myself. Was originally planning to get the 1.5 diesel, and dealers do seem willing to discount them at the moment so bargains are around. But the factor that's pushed me, and a lot of people I know, towards the petrol versions is that many cities will soon be introducing "clean air zones" charging about £10 a day to drive into the city centre. Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham, Derby and Southampton, and of course the ULEZ charge is coming to London too. Euro4 petrols (approx. 2003 onwards) will be exempt. But when it comes to Diesels only the newer Euro6 engines (approx. 2014 onwards) will escape the charge. Those are outside my price range, sadly.

And as my office is centrally located, I'd rather just buy a Euro4 petrol now, knowing it'll be exempt from the new daily tax that's definitely coming. Rather than having to go through the hassle of getting something else in 10-12 months time. I'm aware that it'll cost me up to 50% more in fuel with a petrol version. But balance that against a possible £2500 annual "toxicity tax" for driving a diesel to work and it's a no-brainer to choose the petrol.

Personally, having done 400 miles already - half on motorways - I'm happy enough with the driving experience of the 1.6 petrol. Thumbs Up
