I am in that learning curve phase, homework before buying the above import from Japan. I have had diesel vehicles, a VW TDI and a MB Sprinter 3500. Both only burned Type 2 diesel. As the vehicle I seek is old (1994) I am certain it uses Type 1 (as hard as that is to get in Calif. - though readily avail in most of the world, a good thing). However Type 2 is the common option at your local gas station. Will that work even though it has inferior lubrication properties? Thank you for your input.
