Your move, creep.

I am due to change from a Skoda Octavia 1.9 TDi (diesel) to a Skoda Roomster 1.2 TSi 109PS (petrol). The Octavia will start moving on tickover, which is a great help in multi-storey carparks, traffic jams etc. I haven't driven a petrol engined car for years, so do modern petrol engines have the same ability to 'creep' at low revs? Thank you.

No, they need revs. But you'll soon get used to it.
