    1.Mobil1 Super 3000 5w40.
    2.Castrol Edge 5w40.
    3.Shell Helix Ultra 5w40.

    I would highly recommend the below two.If your ok with the wear n tear part of the engine being on the higher side with maximum performance then u can choose Mobile1.

    pioneer,
    i had that doubt while changing to Mobil product,hence got clarification from Exxon mobil support
    The reply was:-
    But based on the experience of some FIAT'ians i opted for Mobil Delvac1 5W40.

    Your Welcome.Motul is awesome but costly.Per liter cost is around 1100-1200/- It's your call.Sourcing it is also difficult in mumbai.I had a hard time sourcing Motul for my two wheeler.Im using Castrol Edge right now in my Linea.It's become so silent that sometimes i feel the engine is not running at all.My next pour would be the Castrol Edge Proffessional.This one is easily available in navi mumbai.Edge performance wise is also great.Im getting little bit improved overall average than before.

    @ganges

    Im not talking about FIAT recommendetions or so.Im directly talking about the oil.I've been reading some international forums offlate n being finding the Mobil1 to be the most cursed oil due to the high wear n tear of the engine.Higher levels of iron detected in their tests.So i decided to stay away from Mobil1.

    pioneer,
    i'm talking about the standards about the Oil.
    why i'm pointing out is because
    1. Mobil Delvac1 5W40 doesnt says ACEA A3/B3 rather says meets ACEA requirements(as printed on the CAN)
    2.Mobil Super 3000 5W40 meets and is specific with ACEA A3/B3 FIAT 9.55535-N2(These number can be found in FIAT Manual)

    My worry is FIAT recommendation as per MANUAL and which MOBIL product is perfect for our cars from out of two.

  8. Mobil 1 Delvac meets ACEA E7/E8 and API CI-4 Plus, both of which is superior to Castrol Edge not sure about Motul.

    No you cannot. Diesel engine oils are full of cleansers chemicals and the oil seals and other components are not designed to withstand this.

    Never use a Diesel engine oil in a petrol car.

    ACEA E7/E8 is for heavy duty diesel engines right ?
