    Thanks @kunwar.g & @asimpleson .
    I am trying to get CJ or CI API rating Diesel Engine oil for 5W40. None to find yet.
    Do we have anyone who has used CJ or CI ratings? Would that be better than CF ratings we are getting now a days and used by FASS as well including Selenia.

    Further to this seems like Delvac 1 5W40 meets CI-4 specifications.
    Selenia/Motul/Castrol Edge/Helix 5W40 meets CF only as yet.

    Also, the latest Oils which claim to be low on sulphur for DPF cars. Is this good for Fiat MJDs or not?
    Seems like Sulphur/Zinc are the natural lubricants for engines and due to emission norms these are lowered.

    Any inputs. I am pestering with questions only to try out a better oil than Delvac 1.
    As recently I heard lot of reviews on valve tappet sounds due to mix of Group 3 & additives.
    However, if the engine oil is of PAO probably makes more sense along with Ester technology.

    Friends, Just want to get inputs on Motul Xcess 8100.
    I have ordered online from Amazon of 5L can.

    It mentions that it can be used for Diesel Engines with turbocharger. Also meets the Fiat N2 specs.
    Please advice.

    @vtlreja2 - Thanks for confirmation.

    Petronas looks to be good option.

    Also, wanted to check if I can mix Semi-Synthetic 5w40 with Fully Synthetic 5w40.
    I have Shell Helix. Wanted to know if I can mix with Delvac 1 or Motul Xcess.

    Its better to flush the sump before moving onto fully synth.
    Have been using motul 5100/7100 for bikes since a long time and its been a very good experience with those. So 8100 also must be pretty good. Will wait for your reviews !!

    I don't think its advisable to use semi n fully synthetic oil. Still u can ask experts for confirmation.
    Iirc, flush is required if u moving from fs oil to ss oil. Not mandatory for ss to fs.

    Is it advisable to use Engine Flush for new oil change? I had Bardalh Flush used something like 30000kms back.

    Just go for the oil provided my Fiat and adhere to 1 year or 10000 kms schedule... its more than enough.
