      Now, ur LDI will easily run 10k on a CH4 oil. And it would run 12.5 k on a CI4.
      Valvoline CH4 oil I bought last time was around 250/l. Do the maths now.
      I find it difficult to convince people to use mineral oils of CI4 grade in diesel mills rather than synthetic oil. If you are hell bent in using a synthetic oil(just like a love blinded aashique) ensure you get CJ4 oil. Anything less is well labelled mineral oil.
      So you're saying my Ritz can run 10,000 kms on CI-4 mineral oil (Servo Futura-D)?

      I am not hell bent into using anything that doesn't make financial sense. However I have read numerous articles which mention that it's the additives in synthetic engine oils that make all the difference in the long run.

      I would get myself a CJ-4 if it were freely available. So far its been a task to get my hands on one.

      Which car do you drive? And what's your monthly running?
      2003 Hyundai Santro Zip Plus LS - 99,980 kms
      2015 Maruti Suzuki Ritz LDi - 63,000 kms
      2015 Honda City iVtec V - 9,500 kms

      haha, well spending around Rs. 1800 every six months on my car irrespective of the running is not a bad deal

      I read an amazing article which explained as to why can oil changes be delayed when the car is driven at high speeds, however the same needs to be changed earlier if driven in heavy traffic with multiple engine starts. I'll try and stick to 12,500 kms.

      Yes, you can run 10k easily using a CH4 or a CI4 oil.. whatever is mentioned in your car's manual can be followed with eyes closed.
      There would be ritz on the road or other cars also which have the same engine, which would have run more than 2 lakh kms with pure MASS supplied oil. We are not inventing anything new.
      Additives of synthetic and mineral oils are more or less similar, it is the proportion of highly refined and hydrocraked oil or addition of pure synthetic oil that is different. I have mentioned the content of synthetic oil in an engine oil thread here on gearheads you can search muztariq shell synthetic keywords on search tab here or on google to find it.
      I am having a Santro and a Safari, both the cars are getting oil replaced every year or so, the combined mileage would be around 20k per year or less. On santro i overshot the annual interval as it didnt complete even 10k. I use API CH4 or CI4 oil in both the cars although Santro is petrol driven.

      Do they add special additives for Indian roads? Never heard of such a claim. He is telling you what his boss told him.

      I doubt it. Franky I look at a decent brand and the API ratings. Rest is all hype.
