Would petrol work for us?

Hi! Looking at buying a used Honda CRV, I see they stopped doing diesel in 2018, would a petrol be very uneconomical for us, do about 25000km per year. Commute 110km round trip daily to work during school time, all motorway. Have always had diesel and don't know anything about petrol! Thank you!

Our answer:

Hi Mairead,

Honda's petrol engines are very good, and relatively economical, but there's no doubt that, at motorway speed for that distance each day, a diesel is likely to be noticeably more economical.
