Question New Car Options...

Ok guys im after your help. Im looking at upgrading from my XF to somethin a bit newer. Pretty sure im after a falcon, but nothin later than an EL.

- How hard do the sixes in say an EF/EL pull and how rare are 5spd models? - Is there that much difference between the performance of the manual + auto EF/L's?
- Id also possibly concider a 4 cylinder (turbo?) but dont really know too much about whats out there in this price range.

Also, one thing, if i did go a falcon, id like it to have gas. I do alot of highway driving, and gas saves a shitload of money. The XF has gas and the motor handles it no problems, but how do the later fuel injected 6's go with a duel fuel setup?

Cheers lads.

Re: New Car Options...

my EF has dual fuel and its great, i'm glad i have it, average about 400km's from a tank of 68litres mixed city and freeway driving.
the manuals and auto's are worlds apart in performance, a manual is ur best bet if you're wanting a quick car, but they're hard to find.
they can be gotten, just gotta look :)

1995 EF II Falcon GLi: Heritage Green, 4spd Auto, AUII 17" Rims, Custom BA Front Bar, Lowered, Gas Research LPG, Clear Indicators, JVC MP3 Headunit, Phoenix Gold 6.5" Splits, Coustic 481QE Amp, Clarion 12" sub, Leather Seats, Power Window Conversion, 3.45 LSD, Pacemaker Comp Extractors, 2.5" Exhaust, Mandrel Bent Intake, High Flow Filter, Wade 1004 110 cam.
