    Hello,

    I have a 1.2 Petrol Punto which has completed 2 years now.
    Yesterday I took the car for its 3rd free service to Bhaskara Fiat in Vadodara, my home town.

    I saw they charged me Rs 2400 for 4 litre engine oil in the bill.

    On browsing some forums on the internet I came to know that 1.2 petrol punto has oil capacity of 3 litres something with filter.
    In the manual too it's mentioned that 1.2 engines need 3.15 L with filter.

    How come they are charging me for all the 4 litre when it cant take more than 3.15 litre?
    Not to mention they did not give me back the remaining oil of the 4 litre.

    They have charged me for 4 litre oil for both services that I have done there.
    I am willing to take this issue up to the service station.

    Can somebody help me clarifying this issue if I am missing anything?

    if only your FASS is using cans instead of the Oil Barrel then he might charge you for full 4 cans of oils but he's supposed to return you the can.
    The total capacity including Oil sump it is 3.2 Litres.

    Cans? In the bill, they have mentioned it as ENG OIL PTL 50L SYN K 5W40 TO DUMMY 100ML. Quantity- 40.
    Are they saying they used 40 bottles of 100ML oil?
    Whatever it is, barrels or cans, they cant use all of 4 litres. Something is definitely fishy.

    No that's just billing invoice, ideally the reason why the bill is written in 100ML quantity is because most of the FASS use Oil Barrels.
    The Oil only comes in 1L can.
