    Mobil Delvac-1 was delivered by 99RPM yesterday. Got scared at first when I saw that truck's picture on the bottle as I didn't expect that the same oil can be used for heavy vehicles as well.

    Will be going for oil change shortly.
    I am too excited, as have heard lot of good things about Delvac-1.
    Will share my experience with it later.

    Cheers.

    On a related note, how any liters of oil is required? I have bought 5 liters.

    Cheers

    3.2Ltrs.

    if you go less than 3.2ltrs it is fine, but please dont exceed/more than 3.2ltrs.

    @Ganges this link might interest you. I am thinking of adding STP Engine oil treatment to Motul 4100 for the next change. Will report then. Will see if ZDDP produces the smoother engine note and offers adequate protection layers. Alternatively will go for Rimula if I can find one easily in Mumbai suburbs.

    @GirishRaghu keep that Oil Can marked/seperated from the rest, you can use it for consecutive 4 more changes or use it for emergency top up on long journeys.

    Is there any official confirmation for the same? Can you pls tell me which are the Service stations who recommends duration of oil change as 10k .
    I have doubt that temperature in Kerala is not as high as other states(Even though effective temperature is high due to humidity) , then how can Kerala FASS can recommend 10k interval?

    Humid and hot climate is one of the reasons for recommending oil change @ 10k km's in kerala, my earlier service was at 43725 and the next service due at 53725. Kindly see the slip attached recommending the service.

    Hyson and Pinnacle in cochin both recommends oil change @ 10k km.
