    First a bit of history

    self employed flooring installer. ( posh name for carpet fitter ha ha ) .

    current van is a VW T 5 Kombi  lwb  had it since 2005  and mileage 160,000

    my age 63 in august

    would like a new van to see me through to retiring and to use in my old age until I am knackered and dead.

    should be able to keep the old one running for maybe 2 years with out huge expense I hope

    but what to replace it with .Diesel seems to be on the way out .

    Electrickery ????

    2 years from now should be enough to see how those petrol T6s are doing. The higher output one is getting good reviews now. I would probably head towards one of them if your mileage isn’t too high.

    Vito if you want it to last without major expense.

    Eu6 engines won’t be verboten in major cities for a very long time. That said I went with petrol for our kodiaq (180bhp 5-stroke weirdness) as it saved me £2k and it still gets 35mpg for 1700kg 4×4 brick. Currently looking at caravelles & the 204bhp TSI looks tempting (same engine, different tune). Its so much quieter & smoother than a diesel, but still has the grunt if you need it by swapping from 5-stroke to 4-stroke valve timing & piling in the boost.
