Fiat uno with 1,49,000 kms worth it?

Hi all,I'm new to this forum and am going to pick up a 1999 uno s 1.7D .It has power steering and A/C.This will be my first car .Its really well maintained.New suspension,new tires,new clutchplate and master cylinder,new engine mout too.The only thing that worries me is that its done 1,49,000+ kilometres .I drove the car and it runs well,really smooth,no clicking sounds from the engine.

How much longer will this engine last.Also, I wanted to know if the uno has a bosch injection system and if the indirect injection system has a prechamber or a swirl chamber because I want to run it on biodiesel or veggie oil.

Thanks in advance!!!Waiting for your replies!!

Fiat engines are pretty bulletproof but no-one can predict how long any engine will last. The bodywork is more important, it's easy to swop the engine.
No idea about the injection system sorry.

Thanks for the reply.The body is mint.No dents or rust whatsoever.The engine ran well when I drove it,the guy even showed me the complete service history.Is there anything in particular I should be aware of to know if the engine has problems?

Its the same mk2 uno that was sold in Europe.Do you know anyone who has run this on biodiesel or wvo/svo and if the injection pump is made by Bosch?
