Should I buy a petrol or diesel van?

I need to buy a newish Euro6 van. Should I buy a diesel or petrol?

Petrol is you use the van for trips of 15 miles or less on a daily basis.

Diesel if you travel more than 15 miles, as this will allow the engine to reach its optimum operating temperature and let the DPF successfully complete its regeneration cycle.
