Use the following MODEL TEMPLATE as the foundation for the Autopedia's Model page:
Start off with a brief Introduction to the particular MODEL. Please DO NOT use the same Introduction text from the <MODEL> Review page, but rather paraphrase ideas relevant to grasp an overall scope of the vehicle.
See Autopedia's comprehensive Ford Falcon E-Gas Review.
Mention any minor facelifts or major changes made to the vehicle here.
Styles and Major OptionsEdit
Certain vehicles come in different trim levels or body styles. Features and major options should be mentioned here.

As seen on the FuelEconomy.gov website, the City/Highway MPG averages are as follows:
With LPG at half the price of regular fuel and efficiency being around 50% more fuel than a regular falcon (15l/100km) it works out to be a 25% saving on fuel: Fuel is 1.30 per litre LPG is 65 c per litre
1.5x65c = 98cents. Therefor having an egas falcon is like being able to buy fuel for 32cents per litre cheaper than for a regular falcon. This equation works even better when comparing to cars like the Nissan Maxima (a magnificient car) and the Accord which require a minimum of 95 octane with the nissan reccommended to run on 98 octane.
Engine and TransmissionEdit
The Falcon's in-line six-cylinder makes 209 brake horsepower and 374Nm running on LPG - 46 brake horsepower and 9Nm down on the unleaded models. As a result, throttle response is initially a bit sluggish and the engine loses enthusiasm at higher revs. But the muscular mid-range response means it is still a swift means of transport. For the BF II the 4 speed auto gearbox was substantially upgraded. It is has better cooling systems and reliability is improved. That said if you drive one and the gearbox is particularly loud and wines like a taxi take car, it shouldn't. Maybe buy the vehicle and have it looked over by a mechanic while it is under new car, after market or statutory waranty.
Please make sure to write information of the vehicle's performance in a third-person point of view. This section should include information about the car's acceleration figures, handling, braking, etc.
If using information gathered from Road Test articles from a reputable automotive source, then please make sure to cite the quote.
Warranty options and scheduled maintenance information should be mentioned here.
RECALL ALERT: There is a concern over a brake booster check valve that could start a vacuum leak. BF and FG sedans, wagons and utes are most likely affected.
The BF E-Gas Falcon Series I and II Utilities do not have the same standard safety features of the regular falcon (This is the case regardless of E-Gas or unleaded) . The Utility only has one airbag as standard, no ABS, stability control or even traction control. However, appart from stability control these were available as options.
The regular E-Gas Falcon sedan had similar safety features to the regular falcon.

The main competitors are the Toyota Aurion, Holden Commodore, Nissan Maxima, Honda Accord V6. The toyota is probably the most reliable of the competitors but lacks flair. The falcon is not the most efficient but if the driver rides the wave of torque rather than utilising the higher revs as is required in the Honda and the Commodore then efficiency is quite good when compared to a regular petrol Falcon. The E-Gas is much more efficient and a good performer making it a reasonable competitor
If there are hybrid versions of this vehicle manufactured, then please elaborate a little bit on it here.
Of the cars surveyed by the RACV, the 2002-2005 Ford Falcon is the cheapest LPG car to run on a weekly basis.

Current Generation: (BF) (2008–present)Edit
RECALL ALERT: BF II Falcon E-Gas models built from 27th February 2007 to 23rd July 2007 experienced a safety issue. The issue is with the affected LPG tanks that have a service valve hand tap fitted with undersized O-rings.
