It was assembled in Japan, parts could be sourced from anywhere, but, in general they carry majority of parts from Asian suppliers. North American models carry a decent percentage of parts sourced from North American suppliers. You will find that most of your parts are either made in Japan, or in some other Asian country.

How much is a gas in Poland these days? (price per liter, I guess...) and diesel? Is diesel more expensive than gasoline? Can you get "diesel" on black market there?

Roughly price for gasoline is $6,74/gal and diesel $6,82/gal.
Diesel cars became very popular over past 10-15 years, but now gasoline cars market share increases due to all eco-bullshit. European Union introduced low pollution standards EURO5 and all good diesel engines had to be rebuilt and equipped with FAP/DPF=Diesel Particulate Filter. What it changes for me? Except higher car price, my previous car (VW) used mostly for city commuting was producing oil due to DPF self cleaning process - how cool is that? I even started thinking of a small bottling line and selling my car's product to local market.

Black market for diesel? I know there is black market for weed, but never heard about diesel black market in Poland.

My friends there are telling me that there is one; diesel fuel is brought there from Russia and sold diretcly to consumers from the truck/tankers so that you don't have to pay VAT...oh well, just asking....just wondering...I know in Russia you can get diesel from their army depots, if you have the right contacts....

well...since Poland is a border country on EU territory our frontier is being strictly controlled by customs and all other appropriate forces. It means smuggling on a bigger scale is not possible. Fuel no matter if it is diesel or gasoline is being refined locally in our refineries - so there is hardly any import of processed fuels. We do import but only oil (oil tankers) - so it is relatively easy to control the border. From the other hand I heard local people living by the border with Kaliningrad have installed double sized fuel tanks in their cars and are driving back and forth to the nearest pump and selling fuel to their neighbors. I also heard that truck drivers who saved some fuel thanks to eco-driving are cheating their bosses and selling savings. I think neither of mentioned above is common and on a big scale.

How do you service your Subaru? Are there many Subaru dealers in Poland? Is it a common car or most people drive VW, Audis, Peugeots etc. What is the most common diesel car in Poland - or in EU? Are there still diesel Citroens available?

That gas mileage makes me want to cry. My best, driving on the highway in the slow lane was 25mpg.
Enjoy the great gas mileage!
