Mostly Maruti service centre will not carry out changeover to synthetic oil. They will not suggest/recommend change to synthetic oil & would insist on using mineral oil for reasons best known to them.

You can changeover to synthetic oil(Mobil 1) at some other workshop. Read your car manual to decide which oil grade to opt for and/or search threads.

Use engine flush before changing over to synthetic.

Please read, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modify...neral-oil.html (ARTICLE: Synthetic oil vs Mineral oil)

Mods : Please move this thread in appropriate section.

Maruti can put synthetic oil if you insist and you take the oil to them. Question is, do you want to do it so badly?

Actually, the last time I'd enquired about a year back, Mobil1 India had said they can supply the oil directly to RNS for a service. I dont know the current validity of this - perhaps worth enquiring once.

Kuttapan sir,

I really need to know is it worth going for synthetic oil at this point. If it really beinfits to the car I do'nt mind going for it. I need your advice, if any one has tried putting synthetic oil after 10 K Km for Swift D.
