Hi All,

A mate of mine is selling his Tuna - he is upgrading to an Auto
The vehicle is a 2010 3.0 D4D manual with 85000km FSH
he bought it new and is accident damage free, and overall in good condition

he wants R245 000

this seems like a good deal to me - what do you guys think?

Isn't the 38 the standard carb from the Ford V6? I would have thought that would have been too big for our 22R's. Did you fit smaller venturis? Did it not bog down if you slammed the throttle flat?

Thanks for all the feedback so far. The consumption was definitely a plus point waaay better than a cruiser but - suppose the whole cost of ownership need to be taken into account not just fuel. Also a double cab diesel cruiser (I need a bak) is mega $$$.
