We have been offered a great deal on a Holden Captiva 7 SX but it is petrol. I have heard that they can use a lot of fuel and the diesel is much better? How many kms do you get out of a tank and how much does it cost you to fill?

It would just be used for local, city driving so no real long drives

Usually costs me around $70 or $80 to fill up.  Not sure how far I get with it.  I do so much stop start driving, no long distance.

Thirsty +++.  We had a 7 seater LX and kept it for only 18 months before trading it.  

Actually was a zippy little 4wd and great for city driving however I did a bit of running around kids etc and always seemed to be filling it up.  1 tank per week on average so at $70+ was a bit pricey.

That is pretty thirsty. Might wait a bit longer for a diesel or take a look at the new Kia Rondo when it is released later this year. Really we just want a small 7 seater. We had a look at the Dualis + 2 but I didnt really like the rear seats. I saw a used Avensis and I am in love with this car but all the ones I can find have so many kms on them which we dont want

We have the 7 seater LX diesel and it's pretty efficient. Although we've only been through 1 tank so far!

And prior to this we had a Chrysler GV so nothing could be as thirsty as that was!
