Should I get a petrol or diesel SUV?

Should I get a petrol or diesel Porsche Cayenne? Will a diesel be hit with bigger taxes from the Government? I do 15,000 miles a year.

A second-hand Porsche Cayenne is going to be expensive to run, no matter what fuel it uses. Will there be more taxes for diesel cars in the future? Possibly. But they will be small fry compared to the huge running costs of a high performance, petrol-powered 2.5 tonne SUV.
