As far as I'm aware, this models only major difference from earlier L300 Delica, is a water cooled turbo charger. In Asia, as I saw, the same engine was used in trucks and vans well into the 2000's.

Also it's a 2 tank model, which allows the second to tank to be converted to WVO, without the need for a third additional tank. We ran one for years this way, and it's still running around on WVO currently. Max'd the larger existing tank at 400 km WVO range, filled from 16 liter totes with a marine thru hull fitting in the lid sometime after 350 kms. Never really seemed inconvenient, even driving all over BC and Alberta.
