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 :)
