BTW, Delvac is mainly used only by heavy duty diesels as the ones in trucks or generators. For regular passenger cars, the normal Mobile 1 is used. This I got from the horse's mouth, as I email Mobile 1 itself asking what they recommended.
You can count me as one of the ppl who was taken in by the marketing! But this test shows that auto oils work just as well as the so call bike specific oils.
The main thing is to change your oil regularly. There is no substitute for this!

i am not rating it to quailty,i know what the ratings mean
just that in bp/xbhp forums few guys were telling how power 1 turns almost like water at high temp, and the engine heats up like hell, i believe someone's engine got seized too

do ur services as written on the book dont change the oil before the service indication , that will be displayed on ur panel. or the months the dealer said
see this car is good, drive its slowly till the first service, dont go above 130kms. if u change ur oil before time u will upset all ur services. and dont worry about the car its not like other cars.
check ur car throughly and change what ever is necessary, check ur tires too , the ones which comes with the car r real bad tires, ull come to know about the tires in ur 3rd service.
dont worry be happy , chill man
