The oil change for my EECo is due now as she completed 20000 km.[clap]Without giving any trouble to me.
I plan to treat her with synthetic oil this time,it was recommended by the supervisor of atul motors who generally takes care of my EECO.
How good is it.The price quoted was about 1100 per liter.

Same. Vipul motors qouted me Rs.1100 pl for Synthetic oil, But, As I had forgotten my Wallet at home and had no ATM card also, Had to stick to normal one.

Have you done ENGINE DECARBONISING on your EECO? Please share the prices of that.

I asked the executive he said it would cost about rs.500/=, They will be using a can of bg company will add it to the exixting engine oil run the engine in idle for some time and then drain out the oil he said this would remove any carbon particularsfrom the engine and will also help the engine to run smoothly.[:D]

The milk man scratched the vehicle in the early morning.He scratched the front fender,the door and the middle door also.[frustration]
The milk man agreed to pay up will be deducting the cost from his this months BILl[angel]
The vehicle has also got a small dent on the rear door. but that will be covered with the red radium strip that's compulsory here RED STRIP @ the rear and SILVER STRIP ON THE FRONT BUMPER.

The vehicle will be back in 5 days
