Nopes never heard of it, we get Shell, Motul & Mobil1(being the other name for synthetic in the country, people are like synthetic boleytoh Mobil1 )

Are diesel and petrol engine oils same.

Should i pick up Mobil1 5W50 API SM for Peted Swift running around 100kms a day in Mumbai?

Default $$$$its not funny

anyone who truly loves driving...and can afford it.... , move to mobil 1 ......
for driving excellence as stated at the back of me 4 lt jerrycan of 5w50 api sm...... super smooth driving experience everytime.....

i do pay 4000 rs for it...recently found a guy selling it for 26 in mumbai.... been trying to contact mobil 1 india to verify....
go to
mobil.co.in
mobil1 india toll free no s are there

just to say my mobil 1 's made in france...lovely aint it.....

every must use full synthetic.....you just have to try it to see for yourself

i drive a swift by the way
+ give the mobil 1 3000 km to really get working.... at least for neww users...

get a good engine flush and do use a k&n oil filter.... i highly suggest a full car engine decarb + injector cleaning and a new fuel filter and new plugs before that oil change.....all for full performance potential

you can speak to mobil 1 yourself.
mobil.co.in
contact their toll free nos. it's 1800 not 1600. the number is wrongly listed.

he told me it's not possible for it to be 2600 officially [with taxes]. so it's either fake or an unofficial import like i said.

i rather pay upto 900 rs more [including tax] for official mobil 1.

you know people who have bought it fom shetty or city motors [ both are official bardahl] ? ?? any idea where the oil was made??should be given at the back of the jerry can.
