    My diahatsu hijet 2000 S210P is dying a lot today. Many times if I push the gas pedal to the floor or pump a couple of times when the engine begins to bog down it will catch on and keep going. It does start immediately every time after dying. I have been using regular gas with ethanol but adding Lucas ethanol gas treatment to counteract it.

    I’ve read about regular gas with ethanol being a no go on older mini trucks. Does that hold true for a 2000 model as well?

    As I said in another thread, this sounds a lot like my truck a couple of years ago and it ended up being the in-tank filter that is attached to the fuel pump completely disintegrating....These are 20 year old trucks, after all. If you click on my link below to my "intro" page, I discuss it more there on page two. I only run premium, not that it needs the octane, but I'm wary of running ethanol on a vehicle that mostly sits. I probably only run through less than 10 gallons a year.
