QUOTE=Rolo] Richard G, might well be right and the underlying cause may be the accelerator pedal resister. However, applying just a little more power has solved the problem for me. It could also be that, with the lower powered engine and the same weight of car, you might require to apply even more revs.
I've got a 54 plate 1.6TDCI and just about never have stalling problems when pulling away. There did seem to be this higher revs required for the 1.8 diesel from some peoples postings
