I’m really impressed about the fuel consumption of the Allion A15.Yeasterday had a journey to Anuradhapura through Matale and returned through Ella(340km) and It cost me only Rs.2700 using 95 octane.So the car had done closer to 19 kmpl which is kind of impressive for a car that weights 1.2tonnes plus 3 grown up people and using AC all the time.As I remember my 121 did around 15-16 for the same route.
It's a sad day for DIYers and petrolheads who know the value of this man's work. I must have been around ten years old when I first peered in awe through the pages of a Haynes manual. It was one for a Renault 12 that belonged to my grandfather. That manual is probably one of the reasons for why I don't mind some grease under my fingernails, and what inspired me to get one for almost every car I've owned.
Rest in peace Mr Haynes.
