Nope, it only has a 4 cylinder engine in it.

this is the van i am using now

VW caddy

1.9 turbo diesel , i do all suburban work and do about 7.5 litres / 100 Kilometres

60 litres tank and i fill after about 750-800 which is around a week for me

its based on the VW golf 5

there is now 1 called the maxi which is 47cm longer

I only service 1 brand , about a 94% completion rate

but to be honest i only regularly use about 10% of what i carry

there is heaps of storage under the front seats which extends part way under the cargo floor

I seriously was thinking about the bigger van but its so easy to park and i can fit up driveways and turn around in tight spots 

very comfy to drive and a 4 star crash rating  

I can fit a dishwasher or washer in the side door if i need to but extremely rare

You cannot get a caddy in the US. The HHR or the transit is about it for enclosed small vehicles. I would think a trailer would be a good backup for when you have to carry equipment. Leave it at the shop most of the time by the curb painted with your business

No, it does not use alot of fuel, and most of them can run on ethanol 85 octane, (Flex-fuel) as Ford calls it.
