    Mobil 1 is for gasoline engines,Delvac 1 is for diesel engines,so go for Delvac 1.
    Maruti has Mobil Super 5W40,its ratings arent similar to Delvac 1.

    LOL, Fiat India has only two diesel cars, and both of them have the same engine. Also, it's not very powerful.

    On a serious note, 5w-50 is generally recommended as oil for race / rally cars which see extreme conditions. The oil has a higher temp. rating of 50 deg. C which translates to better performance in extremely hot areas or highly demanding performance conditions.

    Petronas have a FS oil called Syntium which is of this grade. It's also significantly more expensive than Selenia FS.

    Moksh,

    When you ask a question here, you are bound to get multiple opinions / responses. That is the nature of any internet forum. The capacities are mentioned in the owner's manual, and I am sure you have a copy of it. Let me know if you don't and I will give you a link to the soft copy, which you can download. Here is the relevant page:

    Engine Oil.JPG

    I have highlighted your car.

    The 5 in 5W40 or 5W50 does not indicate temperature. Neither does the 40 or 50. They both indicate viscosity. The first number (5W) tells you what the oil will be like when you start the car on a typical spring day.

    The second number (-xx) tells you something about the viscosity of the oil as you drive down the highway. Since all auto mobiles are operated at a controlled temperature (water thermostat) the oil ends up rather near 100 C viscosity number when the vehicle is used in a low power condition (like cruising down the highway). This happens both winter and summer with only a few degrees different in the actual oil temperature.


    So for actual long term operating conditions (e.g. after warm up), only the last number is relevant. For start-up conditions (e.g first 15 minutes) only the first number is relevant. In real world conditions, 5W40 or 5W50 does not make any difference. The 50 comes into play only in extreme conditions, like say a race track.

    To summarize - yes you can go with 5W50, spend 200*4 Rs 800 more and benefit nothing, or go with 5W40, save Rs. 800 and buy yourself some beer. Choice is yours buddy.

    if thats the case then,10W-40 should also be in the race.For first 10 mins of engine start-up 10W 40 is good.

    True. Even 15W40 is good enough and 20W40 is sufficient for the south, where we do not see cold winters. Problem is finding these in fully synthetic. If one is OK with SS or Mineral, then these can certainly be used.

    More reading to understand Engine Oils
