Thanks. Ford recommends 5w30. Is it alright to use 5w40?

Hi,
looking at the price, its Fully Synthetic, right ?
this specs looks very outdated, why not something in CH/CI grade ?

Gentlemen,

For the elite i20 CRDi, which fully synthetic oil would be the recommendation of the gurus here? I'm looking for something which will last long through highway drives and city traffic, and reduce NVH as well.

I've got three choices:
1. Shell Helix Ultra : Fully Synthetic 5W-40

2. Mobil Delvac 1: Fully Synthetic 5W-40

3. Mobil 1 : Fully Synthetic 0W-40
Name:  ImageUploadedByTeamBHP1502822956.054604.jpg

The last item is the most expensive of the lot. 5L of that comes in at nearly 5K.

Till now I've been using the semi synthetic Shell HX-710W-40 oil and it has been pretty good so far. I'd like to get the oil changed to fully synthetic at the next service at 40K.

Is Delvac 1 THE best choice for turbo diesels? Please do let me know. I'll be getting this done within a week so I may need to place the orders soon on 99rpm.

Thanks in advance, cheers!
