In Australia the 1.8 engine is considered to be crude and under powered, the 1.4 turbo the best petrol engine, but the 120 kw 360 NM diesel the pick of the engines available. I have one and it is great.

Just did my first trip in the diesel and now have 2,000km on the clock so the engine is not fully freed up yet. I did a rough calculation and got about 15 and a quarter KM per litre. 641km for 42 litres, the tank holds 60 litres. That is close to 400miles for 11us gallons. The car was loaded with luggage 3 passengers and the climate control was on all the time. I used the cruise control and most of the trip was at 110kph and the gearbox was left in auto mode. there was also some low speed town and sightseeing driving up the NSW (Australia) north coast.
