Just traded my ceed crdi for a petrol Soul Samba, what`s the real life mpg like? On paper acceleration between diesel and petrol should be much the same but the Soul seems less responsive,hope this improves with usage. Is it normal for the dash to be lit up when the ignition is turned on and the main light switch at off? Very pleased with the Soul, love the high driving position and overall feel of the car. Mine is red with black pillars and looks like something much more expensive. All for now, cheers.
