My friend is using Petro-Canada Semi-Synthetic. He told me to use that. According to him they are good and it uses synthetic base oil for the Synthetic Blend Oil.
And as I'v been saying repeatedly - semi synthetic does not really mean much unless the manufacturers mentions the percentage of synthetic component. So try not to base your buying decision on a label that says semi-synthetic! And dont get carried away by marketing gymmics!!
Ya thats why i was asking because as soon as i saw USES SYNTHETIC TECH it made me think its a marketing gimmick.

the synthetic oils from total have been gaining quite a reputation on the global scene and they are now available in india. this is surely a must try.
Also check with manufacturer.
i am using agip semi synthetic in my uno 15W40, and i can honestly feel a much smoother acceleration after switching to it, the engine feels a lot more energetic. this has been observed only after about 2 changes. long run synthetic is better.
my honest suggestion is use any regular mineral oil and change it every 5K kms. this should be more than enough.
