Good way to provide information to the products. I have enquired about engine oil and gear oil at the fuel stations, but they are not able to provide me complete range of products.

Now we can know what all products they have & we can ask fuel station to procure them.

I think the * indicates non availability of data.

In my case, I tried accent in Indian cars and it returned no data. Then I tried just Hyundai, I got the data.

FYI for hyundai owners, the terms are similar to those found on the hmaservice site.
