Get your VW Polo with multiple fuel types
There are a few questions you should ask yourself when deciding on a fuel type. Is your car mainly for commuting, or do you tend to take it on long road trips? On average, how many miles do you drive per week? If your car is mainly used for short trips or in the city, the best fit for you would probably be electric or petrol cars.
On the other hand, if you drive many miles each week, we would advise you to choose diesel. It’s worth noting that diesel engines with high emissions are banned from entering cities in certain countries.
