Show your car some synthetic goodness .
I'm not so sure about that. K series engine fine but those F10Ds specify 20w40 mineral.

Go to at the most 15w40 in a semi synthetic. In shell that'd be the HX7 15w40.

His post mentioned that Maruti recommends 5w30 for Estilo, but I feel you might be right!
F10Ds are old engines just like Epsilons.

In that case, 10w40 (Shell HX7) is the best that it should get.

K series engines were installed in later model Estilo and Wagon R and those specify 5w30
