It is said that eighty percent of our oil imports are consumed by motor vehicles. 

Thus we have too many motor vehicles and the spares which we can make for them are many. It is time that Motor Car Dealers switch to making motor spares. My Paper tells it all.

500,000 jobs lost-Local Vehicle Industry(The Island 13/3/21)  sends my mind to many instances in my experience that offer an immediate solution.  

Near my home on Old Kesbewa Road  Gangodawila Nugegoda there is  a man making oil filters. He  has been making those since the Sixties  and selling them some where. In the UK  and US where I have happened to have lived for years there are local makers of oil filters. It is very rare for a manufacturer’s oil filter to be obtained from as far as  France for a Peugeot or Germany for a BMW. Instead there are local oil filters, silencers,  radiators and many other car parts.
