If our lives are forever to eternity, then pick what is sensible.
At my stage of life, I live like everyday is a blessing.
Thus, if you think you'd like the 420SEL but it would cost maybe a few dollars more on fuel over a diesel .. well, economically if you don't mind forking out that little more for a lot more of enjoyment, you'd know what to do.
Life is too short to be encumbered in choosing between a petrol or a diesel.
As long as you are happy.
