I did the flush using 3M product available with MASS. Next time planning to do with OWS. 3M flush costed around 500 bucks IIRC.

Mobil 1 should be available for 800-850 per liter or you can try OWS stuff.

Would it be a problem to mix in OWS 220 engine protector with Mobil1 5w50? Or is it better used with OWS 5w50? Also, to paraphrase my earlier post, should I use the normal 3.3l of engine oil plus 330ml of Engine protector, or use 3.0l engine and 330ml protector?
Yeah, I know I ask dumb questions! What to do? I'm like this only.

protector can be used with another brand oil.
you will have to use less oil to compensate for the protector and then top up later on.

1. You can use 220 with Mobil1.
2. 3.0 L engine oil + 330 ml protector

Whats the difference ? Both of them say that mixing of brands is ok. And the total quantity of the fluid should remain the same. So if any additive is added, it has to be compensated by adding lesser engine oil.

I hope my understanding is correct.

so, the final verdict stands at regular qty of oil + the qty of the protector?

No.. They have said regular quantity of oil minus the quantity of protector Plus the protector, it means if your enine takes 3.3 lts of oil and the eninge protector is 300 ml, just use 3 ltrs of oil and 300 ml of protector, rounding it off to 3.3 ltrs in total.

ROFL!!! Few of the above discussion needs to be in the jokes section!

@Roy.S: IceMan and Maggie are saying the same thing, which is (hopefully) simple words is : The total quality should be as specified. So, reduce the engine oil poured to accomodate the extra fluid. So, it is, as Hemanth said : 3lts of oil + 300ml of protector!

Total lubricant for car = 3Lit. Additive can = 300 ml

So while pouring in = 2.7 Liter of oil + 300 ml of additive = 3 lit lubricant

Oil can be Mobil, OWS or any other brand.

But still I am a fan of OWS 220.

Well, I have absolutely no experience with synthetics, flushes and additives, so you'll have to put up with my wide eyed, sleeve tugging 'uncle, yeh kaise hota hai' type questions
Anyway, I picked up OWS 210 and 360 from MotorSmiths, Jayanagar. Paid Rs.1134. They had also quoted an extremely competitive price for OWS fully synthetic engine oil, but unfortunately did not have it in stock, so I went with my original plan and picked up 4l of Mobil1 5w50 for Rs.3200/- from Mr. Prasad of Speed-a-way.
So, its still available for 800/l.

Guys,

Do not change the brand of your engine oils frequently. Also do not trust the flushes like OWS/Bhardhal, they don't do anything. And its impossible to clean out the old oil from the engine unless you open up the engine.

I just imported a 10 lacks engine from China for my boat and the first advice I got from the manufacturer was

'Put any 15W40 OIL from any brand, But you should NEVER change to another brand in the engine LIFETIME'
