for £1500 you can get a punto 1.3 diesel multijet which is about as good as fiat engines get. no messing about and returns 60+mpg with £30 a year road tax

Re: 1.2 petrol to 1.2 diesel conversion?

As above, buy a complete car.
Changing the engine from another vehicle will be a lot of work, including wiring looms, ECU, etc.
Front suspension will be stiffer for the diesel/van, so the whole front legs will need swapping, plus the brakes may be bigger. Then you have to tell DVLA and make sure that gets registered correctly, then tell the insurance company, who will then have to compute a new premium based on it being a special.

Do you want transport, or a project?
