Wow, now who is this DISCOUNT friend of yours from my town, Rahul?Originally Posted by mclaren1885
BTW, IMO all oils are the same as long as you change them frequently. I use three different brands in three different vehicles and am Happy
My MG413W runs Duron Semi synthetic oil - Interval 5K kms
The Accent CRDi runs - Shell Helix Ultra / OWS Multimax HD 15W40 - Interval 5K kms
The Bolero Storm VLX - Mahindra's patented engine oil changed by the ASS guys - Interval - 5k Kms.
IMO the engine oils act as a flush and the earlier we change them the better for any IC engine. No point in going in for costly flushes unless one like to experiment! The engines definitely appears smoother after any oil / oil filter change.
Unless one is into high revving racing kind of situation or the engines rev beyond 10K rpm, there is not much point in going in for a fully synthetic oil.
I do not hope to start a war and this is my experience and opinion.
