Well when I tried this combi on my baleno earlier on as per our Viddy's recommendation I was a little skeptical about the OWS engine oil. However went on and took the plunge and trust me I felt the engine revved much smoother than the Mobil 1.

The guys at RNS know that my car was running a FFE and they too were surprised to know the effect this oil had. Car revved really free during the test drive and while the engine oil was being changed we had 3 service advisors who were sitting by the baleno and over looking the whole process of the engine flush and the injector cleaning.

Farhan had provided good details on how the ingredients was to be used. Heck even Viddy's lancer felt real good as per him after the change.

The Lancer still feels good. Almost a year after the oil change and 8000kms. With the spark plugs change it's super sweet now. Am loving it.

I shall remember to take a Mcchicken burger on my next visit to Chennai for Farhan.

Next week coming up OWS goodies in my Alto. The stuff has already come down.

Just a quick suggestion, its better to run for another 50-100 kms with new oil and then replace the plugs also. All the soot woot could come out to the plug, so atleast do a cleaning (if plugs are new) once you do the flush job and put new oil.

I recently had an really good experience with the OWS package as well. I'll be talking about it in more detail in my LTO which I'm composing - for the last 10 days ! I need to put in more cycles (somehow) to finish composing that LTO

For people like us, 10k kms. Though you can easily use it for 20k kms.

I too have had some retailers telling me about 20K to 30K kms intervals before changing. That's pure bunkum. You need to stick to the mfrs recommended intervals i.e. 5-10K kms over a 6 mth to 1 year interval in most cars. Please understand synthetic is NOT magic. You must not and cannot justify the expense on synth oil by only extending the drain interval.

Rgds,

Manufacturer, as in vehicle or oil? Maruti recommends 20k intervals for mineral oil change, so I was saying that OWS fully synthetic oil will last atleast as long as that.

Anyway, you're preaching to the choir on this one. I'm the sort who changes oil every 5000 km, synthetic or mineral.

I meant the vehicle manufacturer.

This is news...Maruti recommending a 20K kms drain interval. Which car is that for? If it is 20K then you can use any of the Maruti recommended oils till thats mentioned in the manual. A synth will obviously be better provided one does not mind the expense.
