Ketan, since its a non-CRDI engine in the palio D, U can safely use the Mobil1 5W50 which is rated at API-CF4 for diesel.

Only the CRD/multijet engines need CG or CH spec oil.

Guys,
I own a Scorpio CRDe which requires oil higher than API CH-4 specs.Does anyone know of any Synthetic oil that is available in India that meets/exceeds this spec ?

Thanks,

Guys,

I have tried JC Road and could not find Delo 400, there was one small shop guy who was selling Delo Silver though, (the print says its caltext, a product of Chevron).

I went ahead and bought Delvec MX for my car...
I will update you guys if I notice difference after adding Delvec MX to my Palio-D

I'm still looking for Delo 400 if someone can help me find out where can I get it in Bangalore.
thanks.
