PostSubject: auto or manual efficiency   Sun Oct 09, 2011 10:19 am

hey guys this is my first post.

I've been thinking of getting a hiace for a few months now, and im checking out a super custom with low ks on it tommorrow. im trying to decide the benefit of a manual over an auto...
in these vehicles with the 3lt diesel, what would the difference in efficiency be for city and country driving?

thanks for any advice guys. any other information would be helpful.

Not sure with the SC but as a rule the manual will return better MPG.

yes i think it would, but im wondering what the difference is in l/100km...

another thing i was wondering is what the first year was that hiaces got abs, or if its possible to fi abs to a car that doesn't have it (maybe im dreaming)

Ours is 94 SC and has ABS and our last van a 90 Ace petrol didn't have it so somewhere inbetween I spose. Tho the SC has that much more than the ordinary van

and as for the mileage depends how you drive. We got up to 30mpg out of the 2.4 petrol Ace and around 20 on average out of the 3lt, but I know which one I prefer to drive Smile
