Which engine.....diesel 240hp or petrol 250hp?

Post by JasonKing » Sun Jan 12, 2020 12:00 am

As in the title, which engine would you recommend? Our current car, an E-Pace 180d, has 13k on the clock since March 2018. Going to get an R Sport F-Pace for march and wondered what owners thoughts were on the two engines? 240bhp diesel or 250bhp petrol? Obviously mpg isn't too important, but what are the advantages you've found with either one?
Thanks

13K miles in just under 4 years is very low mileage. What sort of driving do you do - lots of short journeys or a few long journeys? If the former then with a diesel you may encounter the DPF regeneration and oil dilution issues discussed at length elsewhere in this Forum.

Hi Jason, welcome along to the forum. Wondering if you've made a typo mistake with your date there? March '16 is too early for an E-Pace. The F-Pace was released first and the very earliest deliveries of those were in April/May '16. From memory, I think the E-Pace was at least a year later, if not more.
. . since July '16, 2.0d R-Sport, Ammonite Grey w Black Pack, Jet/Red interior and a few useful options

Spot on for the dates FPace was released somewhere in mid 2016 and after that e pace a year after.
Wasn't that DPF issue related to JLR architecture where engine placement is different like e pace , Evoque, discovery sport have same engine placement and hence more DPF related issues whereas f pace has different engine placement than those.
But anyway 14k miles even in 2 or 3 year's of usage a bit low I think.

Thanks.

Doh, my typo, was March 2018 we got the E-Pace of course not 2016!!

Do some short journeys but didn't think it affected the 240hp diesel, although would like to know if it does obviously.

Yes was 2018 we got the E-Pace. We don't do very much mileage I know, that's why I would like opinions between the 240hp diesel and 250hp petrol. Cheers.

I would personally go for the petrol, unless you do long journeys all the time the car will do a DPF regen a lot, I found this out with the ones I had, every five trips it would do one, with the petrol you will not have this issue.

I agree. If I had my time again, and given the shorter journeys we tend to do now we are retired, I would go for petrol rather then diesel.
