    You would have to run really crappy oil or an oil which has lost it's strength to notice a big difference in NVH.

    As long as you are changing oil frequently, you wouldn't notice anything. And that's exactly how it should be. Shouldn't wait for the engine to start screaming for new oil. Greenpeace guys wouldn't agree with me though :evilsmile

    Cheers.

    I completely agree, when we spend 3 times over a regular oil we tend to wait for the engine to scream or atleast a year.
    7500 or max 6 months keep changing the oil, your engine will love you for giving a fresh blood and you can really hear it singing :p

  3. 1800 X2 =3600 for selnia for an year for two changes.
    It is Rs 3400 Mobil for 15k or 1 year.

    Also fully synthetic oil provides better cold start protection.

    Ain't happening for my MJD atleast, till something like Rimulia 10w40 as suggested by Gurjinderbhai earlier is available and regularly at that. Looks promising and safe cost wise.

    Today i have changed engine oil + Oil filter. I got Shell Helix 15w-40 HX6.
    ODO - 70600 Kms. I am planning to give service @ 75000Kms.
    Shell Helix HX6 for 5k kms is good enough ?

    I felt better when i drive my punto after oil change . May be because prevoius selenia was already 12k kms old. Definitely NVH levels are lesser now.
    Anyways i am planning for major service @75k Kms.

    Yes, low NVH is due to this nice oil as well. As I said earlier, this oil really makes your engine sound better.
