RR, I source my lubricant supplies from the distributor of Castrol in G.P. Road.
When I was there, i noticed the 4litre can of Mobil1 with him and checked it out.
Apparently, there has been a hike in lubricant prices, and prices have gone up by around 10%.
The shop's called V.M.S. Auto and its next to the Jayapradha theatre on GP road.Let me know if u need a discount, ill talk to him.

The shell petrol pump in Old Madras Road, Bangalore does not have Synthetic Oil. The service attendant has not even heard of synthetic oil...
Please let me know in which petrol pump I can get synthetic oil.

From personal experience and as someone else mentioned on this thread, try the Shell Pump at Lavelle Road, just ahead of Cafe Coffee day. I know he keeps Shell Helix Ultra Synthetic oil.

Cheers.

as mentioned in this post when to get the flush done,have a query what if its done every time the oil is changed(same grade and type) any advantages or disadvantages

The OMR Shell bunk keeps Shell Helix Ultra. It may be out of stock. Other shell bunks @ Lavelle Rd , Hosur Rd , Hyd Rd , Mysore Rd and Yeshwantpur stock Shell Helix Ultra. U can also source it from JC Road.
