I suggest you to buy petrol car only if your running is limited to 1000kms/month. No it is not necessary to start your car every day as these days diesel engines are very much refined . You would be paying more cost , more registration tax , more VAT and more insurance if you buy diesel car.
No.. There are no limits. But please note that maintenance costs are also high in the diesel. As the vehicle ages the service cost for the same model petrol will be much less than Petrol.

The i20 CRDi has got the most powerful diesel engine and it is quite spacious and segment leader when it comes to features, fit and finish; The Swift DDiS is very agile and fun to drive of the lot; The DZire DDiS has got softer suspension than the Swift and therefore it has got better ride quality for day-to-day needs; The Polo TDI has got…[Read more]
It is a bit complicated to just compare engines, especially when the figure on paper is at the flywheel, an engine component that you may not even see in years of ownership of the vehicle. Also there are many other components which give a vehicle different characteristic behaviors such as suspension components, steering components, chassis…[Read more]
