Aro 243 Diesel

aro 243 d diesel almanah

Aro 243 Diesel was the first diesel Aro ever made at Campulung-Muscel. It was presented at TIB 1978.  The engine was made in collaboration with ICPAT-Brasov. Aro 243 D had a maximum load of 700 kg. The 4 cylinder 3100 cc engine that develops 68 hp and 18.5 kgfm of torque was proven reliable and rugged after some tests off road but also at 100+ km/ h speeds on highway.

The main advantage and reason of development was its low fuel consumption, of about 9 – 10 l/ 100 km compared to the classic gasoline engines which consumed 14.5 l/ 100 km. This was in the context of the 1973 oil crisis, when diesel oil was much cheaper. Engineer Petre Livoschi, one of the creators of this model, stated that after about 200 000 km traveled with the Aro 243 D you would save enough money to buy another exact diesel Aro from the factory.
