    I'm getting ready to buy a Dixie 60", I can get the 25 horse Kohler or the 26 EFI for about 200 dollars more. What do you guys suggest!
    Thanks

    Spend the money and go for the fuel injection. You wont be sorry.

    Keep in mind the 26 will use more fuel.

    I thought the fuel injection would use less fuel than the carb. 25 horse?

    MX is right...confirmed by my dealer a FI model will use less fuel than a carb model no matter the HP.

    The fuel injection was made to use LESS fuel. Go ahead it will be worth it in the end! Good Luck :)
