    5W 40 is FS and FIAT recommends the same.

    Ganges Selenia WR 5w40 is semi-synthetic. Please go through the thread just in case. FS grade oils are above 3.8k or more on an average.

    GirishRaghu, what you need is a bill on each service mentioning Selenia WR 5W40 oil costing some Rs. 2.2k approx. for 3.2 ltrs. It is essential for company and extended warranty both. It is requisite to use company recommended stuff for full warranty. After warranty you could perhaps think of going for shell, mobil or continue with selenia as per your wish.

    Yes you are right.

    i thought that 5W 40 was always FS, as the brand i used Shell Helix Ultra/Delvac 1.

    Actually, it is not fair of Fiat to not have mentioned clearly the oil grade. Instead they use term like hydro-cracked bla bla on Selenia website too.. which is simply put mineral oil based with lots of additives if one cares to carefully decipher it. :)

    On one of the posts on this thread the difference is clearly mentioned, I think Selenia K energy(!?) is FS.

    if we speak such hifi words about oil.


    Does our car really needs FS ?
    To know the difference of the NVH after change of the oil is very hard to predict.if i change from Shell HX7 to Shell Helix Ultra , cant find any difference in NVH.
    Dont know, how it will be if it was upgrade from LaL Ghoda to Shell Helix Ultra :) .
    i'm happy with Shell 10W-40 HX7,cheap as well,now i'm due to change the Oil, tomorrow will buy another HX7 CAN of 3.5ltrs.

    Shell Helix Diesel is also manufactured by shell, any idea where one can find those. Had used on my 1lac kms driven Siena D and the difference was amazing.

    I would prefer the one marked with Diesel for better engine protection.

    Not sure if it is semi-synth. The grade 10W40 is min. what I would try. 15w I would not know if we are risking it in long term.

    Due to the lack of service centers around, I got the fourth servicing done at a local garage. I used Petronas Syntium 5w40 fully synthetic engine oil. From whatever little I could drive after the service, it seemed decent.
