Hi mate I'm in ashford in Kent. Would recommend the 2.5 tdi I had a 2.4d before and it was hard work but the 2.5tdi has lots of power def the way to go.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I have my trusty 1.9TD but for what you want then I have to agree with the others on the 2.5TDi

Hey ive just done the same thing... bought a lwb with a poorly running 2.4.... i intend on carring 500-1000 lbs regularly.. occasional a bit more with drywall and plywood runs.. but thats only once a month or so.

IN CANADA WE WERENT BLESSED WITH THE #$%@%& 2.5 TDi AN OPTION in any vehicle!

I was also told the 2.5 burns double the fuel of the 1.9....anyone have expierience compairing the 2 with a loaded lwb... please comment!

CAN I GET ENOUGH POWER AND RELIABILITY TO USE THIS VAN AS MY DAILY DRIVER RENO VAN? ...or is it a dream without the 2.5?
