    incredible pics Ramjn:) How do you manage to get such good snaps :)

    Btw Athirappally -Valparai stretch will be greenest during monsoons. It will be dark and green and scary at times if you are alone with the silence of the forest

    Its semi synthetic oil with 15W-40 grade.
  5. Changed to MRF ZLO ???? Why Why Why Ramesh... you could have called me or PMed me for an opinion before deciding. Not a bad decision but nothing good compared to GT3. The tyre remains the same even after runnin. I have done 10K Kms in my Zlo. But you will get used to the spongy feel during the curves and start acting accordingly. +ve side being the braking is better compared to GT3.

    Beautiful pictures Ramesh. First I thought it is the Ooty - Pykara - Mysore Highway. This stretch is super in your pictures.

    I should have followed J.Ravi sir's policy. When we are satisfied with a product, why try another? I may stick with Acelere itself when I change next.

    ^^ haha, I basically mentioned the same thing in the tyres thread after driving on the MRF ZLO's for 2 days. But unfortunately, the next tyre change would be atleast 40 K kms away.

    i believe very soon you will fall in love with MRF ZLO's.
    i'm loving my MY-02 Bridgestone.
    Soft side walls are the matter of habbit,once used to then you say no GT3.

    ramjn,
    FIAT recommends 5W 40.

    kedar,
    why 15W 40 any specific reason ?

    I was worried about this mileage factor and the things did not improve even after coming back from the trip. Filled one tank of fuel at Shell and revved hard since last week. From Friday, the car has become surprisingly smooth and not feeling any sluggishness. It is moving with ease now. I took to highway on Saturday and was doing between 100-120 kmph and it returned me a mileage of 17.8. Good improvement since my Valparai trip. I will be replacing the Air filter this week and see if the situation improves further. :)
