    Did you mean Castrol Vs Mobil1 Vs Delo 400? There is no single oil which is "best", like in cheap and best, for every application. Please also tell us what you want to use it for, and the suggestions can be better.

    Also, Mobile and Castrol have a lot of different types of oils, which are very different from each other.

    Is Mobil Delvac 1 available in India now? Dont remember it being easily available earlier. So if you can afford it, surely go for it. If you cant afford it, or you think that is costing silly money, by all means buy the Delo 400.

    Or of course, there are new Diesel oils from Shell, I plan to try that next time. Why dont you do a visit to the nearest shell service station, and see what they have available new?

    Ps. Lost the shell brochure I had, cant remember the names of them new oils.

    If you can get Delvac 1, there's nothing like it.
    Its cheaper than Mobil1 too.
    I'm still a hardcore OWS turboracing fan.
    But might be overkill in unmodified cars.

    Delvac 1 is also fully synthetic. Is it a lot cheaper than Mobil 1? Not sure of that?

    Also, what are the specs for the OWS turboracing oil?

    Iknow delvac 1 is fully synthetic. the price quoted to me was Rs200/liter cheaper than what was quoted for mobil 1
    OWS TR doesnt have any specs written anywhere on its packaging.
    I'm going on faith and on what I have seen it do to my car's NVH,revvability,smoothness. all subjective, yes, but it is difference I can feel. never got that when I used Mobil1
