unfortunately mobil1 is only available in 5W50 grade around here, and at least for Mumbai weather 15W50 (that shell sells) is much more appropriate. The wider the range, the more additives they put in the oil, so, at least in my opinion, its better to get oil for only the range of temperatures that you anticipate you will need.

Thats true Akshay, I think I'll just do that. Other thing is that I've been too lazy to drive all the way to Opera House (some of us suburban folks dont go to 'town' so often).

Thanks Milind for the contact. I orderd Mobil Delvac 1 5w40 for my Swift Diesel from him. I got it for 675 per liter. MRP written is Rs.880 and last time when I bought it in Pune I paid 850 per liter.

His shop is at Masjid Bandar near Crawford Market but he delivers it all over the Mumbai. Why don't you call him? I think he is ran out of old stock so when I got the oil 2 months back I had to pay 800 per liter (MRP written was 1000+).

Default Re: Where to buy Mobil1 / Castrol Synthetic Oil in Mumbai?

Friends,
I am using Mobil1 (0W-40) in my car for last 70,000 KM. But now my local ASC is not providing me with this oil. May I use Castrol Edge (0W-40) oil in my car as a replacement? Please let me know.
