D-jet reliability. Some of these fuel systems are pushing 40 years old now, and I can attest that the d-jet in mine is very reliable. The car that the components came out of did over 220k miles, then they were put in my 73 nine years ago. I've only had one issue since(turned out to be a faulty ground), but I certainly don't use it as a daily driver. I will admit that undertaking a long road trip is butt-clenching, as it's not like you can buy replacement parts at the local parts store, or you can find a mechanic that knows what he's looking at.
I had an intermittent fouling of spark plugs about 20 years ago, and it turned out to be too high fuel pressure. Easily checked if you have a gauge, and easily adjusted via the pressure regulator. For 1973 and up the pressure should not exceed 28psi.
A well-running 99 with d-jet is a blast to experience, bar none.
