My experience with gas ovens has been that the temperature is never even, and fluctuates like mad. Very bad for roasts. Does dual fuel really cost so much more?
From what I recall, they are almost twice as much. We bought ours before dual fuel was an option, so I am not well versed in the price differences.
I have not had a lot of trouble with roasts. However, I think that we usually cook pure roasts in our Thermador electric as it is self cleaning. I would just go for six burners and be done with it. The other options are not worth it. This model is the only one that would be a good option, but it does not come smaller than 48".
