What used Volvo V70 estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Volvo V70 estate?

The high-performance T5 and R are fun and cheap to run if someone else is paying for the fuel and the tyres. Use all that power and you'll be lucky to get anywhere near 20mpg, while a hard-driven manual version can also kiss goodbye to a set of front tyres within 7000 miles.

The 2.5-litre diesel can treat its front tyres just as harshly, because of its muscular pulling power and the instant nature of its delivery. At least with the diesel you have the compensation of 40mpg and much lower insurance costs.
