    It's to do with low end torque; Diesel engines and cars with large engines usually have a lot of it, so they are able to pull away without needing any throttle.
    I see, I knew there was an association somewhere. I do listen to what my brother tells me really... honestly :p:

    I have a 0.8 petrol and I can do exactly what you describe as 'crawling' through the traffic.
    Yeh it does depend on other stuff. My mums 1.3 KA can crawl just with the clutch off but my 1.4 has absolutely no chance :p:
