Yes I checked with Talera Ford here, but it seems they never kept it in stock (for last so many months), though Ford recommends it in the owner's manual. It used to be available at few petrol pumps, but even they have stopped selling it now.

@trave11er,
I bought Iftex System D from a Dealer in Pune in June 2012.
Its Vijay Lubricants Company (or Corporation, I don't remember correctly).
I have his mobile number though if you find it helpful.
The owner's name is Mr. Prashant. Mobile--9822330662
I got his number from Iftex Himachal Pradesh 01792234181.

Would this help in keeping the fuel injectors not getting clogged due to low quality fuel?

You can also get it at Kulkarni Petrol Pump at the beginning of Laxmi Road. IIRC the name of the bunk is Premier Suppy Co or something similar.

Thanks for the information friends. Will check at the PP on Lakshmi road. Last time I tried calling Mr. Prashant, but didn't work.

Hi, System-G/-D is not available at fuel pumps. You need to pick it up from shops selling automotive spares, engine oils etc. It's widely available all over Delhi.

You know Shamindra, I find it very abnormal. System-G/-D are available in many COCO bunks in Mumbai and Bangalore. And I've seen in Chennai too.
I don't really understand what's the issue here in Delhi.

It used to be available at fuel pumps earlier, but from what I am given to understand, ever since the oil marketing cos. started pushing their premium fuels, they asked dealers to refrain from selling these additives at their outlets. The last 2-3 years, I haven't seen them at fuel pumps in Delhi, but almost every spare parts dealer stocks them.

Found System D in stock at patel auto in tambaram at chennai. Bought 6 bottles. Shop keeper told me I wasn't the only one. He said it's apparently in demand, but with spotty marketing/distribution. he said he bought in bulk, and had a lot more

Yes, I heard something like this in one Indian Oil pump in Bangalore. And that time Xtra Premium was selling pretty well. But those guys had enough stock.

Well, I'm using System G for last nine years and I'm really happy.

I don't remember how long I've been using both System-G & -D, and to echo you, I am equally happy too. However, I tend to use the stuff in every tankful at a lower ratio than recommended - about 0.4 to 0.7 ml/litre (say, 15-25 ml for a 40-litre tankful). I find a higher ratio (1 ml/litre) tends to reduce FE slightly with no gain in power or smoothness.
