looking to buy my first Patrol. Will be used for evreyday suburban driving and towing a horse float.

Just test drove a 4.8 2002 duel fuel Patrol. very nice drive, 165,000.
Really need to know what i am up for with :
issues to look out for?
running costs for fuel and servicing?

the other option is a 98/99 4.5L GU ST for around the 15k mark, duel fuel again.

The 4.5 would be better for my budget, but don't want to make a big mistake.
The 4.8 is a bit of a stretch, and my emergency fund will be gone, but rather invest into the car then on repairs!

please help me out with pro's and cons!
