Can you suggest a petrol pick-up truck?

I have a great Mitsubishi L200 pickup, which is pre-DPF. I'm now looking to change it, but I only do 5000 - 6000 miles per year, which are mostly short journeys so I don't want a diesel with a DPF. Is there a petrol pickup option out there that would suit me?

I'm afraid there are no sensible petrol pick-ups on sale in the UK. You could look into an import from the USA, but the running costs will be sky high. If you can live without four-wheel drive, a petrol van might be a good alternative: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-top-10s/top-10-petrol-va...s

A modern diesel pick-up with a DPF will require at least 15 miles per journey to operate correctly and a petrol van might be your only option if your daily usage doesn't qualify for diesel: www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/miscellaneous/2017-10/ev.../
