Transit Connect's for me. They are good on fuel and reliable. Do have a normal transit for taking big stuff to sites.

My transit slurps like there is no tomorrow. It is ugly, and damn unreliable. My next work van is actually an Audi RS6. The lads are having the vans! ;)

ive got a 90ps connect and can get about 45mpg, but if you give it some then it drops off by quite a bit as with all diesels, if you boot it, it still drinks it!

yup, I currently have Peugeot Expert 815d.

bad fuel consumption drives, like a dog when fully loaded.

Good if you don't want to be caught on speed cameras :)

definately enjoy the extra space compared to the Partner van
