    I am afraid you will need to search a bit. Try Justdial. You might need to call a few people and order it specially. Not everyone is selling these. HX7 is available rather easily, but better if can get Rimula, should make a difference.

    IDK what's with Shell, they are not even selling DIESEL marked oils which they sell in other countries. A special formulation for Diesel engines works better for sure.

    Today I changed Engine Oil and it was Bosch 5W40. Actually in our town no other products like shell or mobil are available so no option but to go with Bosch. Lets see how my Punto reacts now, coz for the first time I switched from Selenia to Bosch

    First time I used Shell Ultra 5W-40 for diesel cars. After using selenia the difference I have noticed in 75ps MJD Punto, Less smoke on resonce of turbo in faster acceleration. No difference in noise and driving experience.

    Yes, you can use it.Maruthi also used MJD Engine.

    Would suggest you to prefer Shell Helix Ultra above maruthi recommended shell HX8.
