Is there any advantage price wise!? It doesn't seem to be. The price quoted for synthetic oil is roughly the same the service guys quote for my Fabia. Actually, I had an impression that the service guys get a significant cut from the oil price they quote. Just yesterday I got a flier from a new service center in my locality offering 1000/- gift card for Mobil synthetic oil replacement.

This is good news. I always purchase their lubes from my neighborhood Shell pump for safety reasons, though I have to pay MRP. But sometimes the pack size I need will not be available, so I always buy a couple of months in advance for the car and keep one spare can for bike. Let me try this out next time.

That's interesting. How do we make sure the oil is genuine? I mean that much margin

You mentioned you picked up the oil locally so i thought you may know about the price you paid vs online price. I will find time to visit the nearest shell outlet and check the same. Thanks

There are 2 seals on oil can. Seal one is the plastic cap which is tightened like soda bottle and then there is a aluminum foil seal on the cap. I think shell should be written somewhere, however I am not sure about it as i did not notice about it.

I can tell the oil was genuine because it came with the invoice and I am using it since last 8 years! (Thanks to GTO advice)

I have heard auto dealers have up to 30%-40% margin on MRP specially on these premium products because hardly anyone use fully synthetic oil in the car and they may have to shelf it for long time. This is why you will have to hunt for fully synthetic oil as they will not be readily available everywhere.

As I mentioned earlier, I always buy from Shell pumps and they always charge MRP. They don't give any discounts. But the oil will be genuine.

This is a good news indeed. We can get genuine oil, and we can choose from a better range of products!

I used to change the engine oil separately - I mean not with the usual service. I've heard the service centres sometimes mix the old oil with the new one, so that they can 'oil-change' 2 cars with one can of oil; and since the mixed oil is better than the old one, we'll feel the improvement. I never trust them and used to change the oil at a separate mechanic by buying the oil myself and watching him change the oil.

I picked up my own 6L supply of Shell HX6 Diesel (1x4L and 2x1L) recently from a Shell distributor, at a discount of approximately 14% off MRP. Since Snapdeal includes home delivery and a 10% discount, I think the pricing is well worth it, especially since genuineness of the oil is assured. I've spent more than the extra discount I got, to burn fuel and devote time and effort in picking up the cans.
