Few people know (and even less care) that the F2 and Fe engines where also used in Yale / Hyster forklifts.
And although electric forklifts are taking over the market, F2 and F3 engines are still options.
Many block parts are the same as the cars and parts are far more available for the forklifts.

It is hard to believe that the primitive cast iron, fuel injected, inefficient, massively heavy F2 engine is still being used.
Either this is a stubborn company or the engines proved reliable enough to keep using.

I would have to go with reliable. Keeping the the oil clean I took my 626 to 400,000 when I got rid of it. Still didn't burn any oil. I got rid of it when I bought a cx-5. But now back in an mx-6 because I saw a great condition for one and I like it more than the cx-5. Although with gas prices they way they are, the cx-5 did get better mileage.
Also a heavy engine isn't neccarily a bad thing in a forklift. Helps counter balance.
