I’m planning to buy synthetic engine oil from the market & get it changed at the authorised service centre during my car’s 2nd service.

BHPian goandude recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

My Hyundai i20 1.0 Turbo Sportz is due for the 2nd service. This involves changing the engine oil.

The Hyundai website, which gives service cost estimates, quotes Rs 1357 for 3.6 litres of mineral oil.

The owner’s manual, on the other hand, states using mineral oil is considered a severe operating condition.

It’s confusing, to say the least. Any inputs from owners?

I’m planning to buy synthetic oil from outside and take it to the HASS for changing during the service.

Update 1

I spoke with the service manager at Advaith Hyundai Indiranagar and he said that 5W30 for approx 380/- a litre is mineral oil and that’s what they use for the GDI engine.

However, they do stock synthetic oil @ Rs 800 a litre which they would use if you wanted to.

I think I would go in for a mix of 2 litres of synthetic and the rest mineral to get a semi-synthetic.

Update 2

Got my second free service done this morning at Advait Hyundai Indiranagar. The car was exactly 12 months old and had 8500 km on the odometer. They filled 3.6 litres of BS-VI Turbo Petrol Engine oil @ Rs 338 per litre. The oil filter cost Rs 75 and something called Car Care for Rs 200. Let me see how she runs and I will update later.
