Engine Oil Change- Selenia or any other synthetic

Discussion in 'Technical' started by ysapre, Jun 30, 2010.

  1. Very simple, FIAT can't spend time in testing each and every brand of oil in the market so they endorse some and leave it at that.

    Sat,
    i'm not mentioning aboout the usage of brand's though all brands have/or meet the same grade and specifications(A3/B3,E7/E8,C3).
    or you mean to say that Selenia doesn't have E7/E8 specification fully synthetic oil ?,ofcourse there is difference in A3/B3 and E7/E8.

    if they have tested on E7/E8 specification oil as well ,this could have made our life easy to select the brand of oil based on specifications.

    i believe there might be some reasons !!!.

    These standards would've been laid down when FPT would've developed the Multijet way back. FIAT India would've simply copied it from there.

    Also, it is hard to find E7/E8 oils everywhere. A3/B3 are commonplace. That also could've been one consideration.

    It is upto the end user to think and know more! Companies always walk the "safe" line.

    Cheers.

    Here in Chandigarh, as told by a member , the price is ~3750 for 5 litres. So do try and haggle.

    Although oils in sealed containers do not degrade, but do try and look for a recent packaging. That oil has already spent close to two years in the bottle. Or try for a better deal on this Aug 2010 packaged can.

    Cheers.

    i thought u were telling about 2012 make.
    then its too costly.

    i purchased 4 Litres
    1L dabba = 880 INR make April 2011,overall for 4L=3100 INR.the shopwala also told that the prices for 2012 make has been revised and on higher side.
    if you are saying 2010 then definitely price should be less,you can bargain ,as they also want to finish the old stock as soon as possible :)
