  1. Buying a second-hand car is as important a decision as getting a showroom delivery for the new car. For both cars, you need to be sure of performance, price, fuel efficiency, service requirements, and others. Here is what you should do to buy a second-hand-car in India. 

    1. Decide your financial capacity: You should first decide on how much can you spend to buy a car. Next, then you should know your limit to which you can extend.
    2. Decide the make and model: You should first decide the type of car you want to buy for yourself. The best idea would be to read the online reviews about the car and find out about the performance as much as possible. Once you decide the car, you can then find out about the sellers of the second-hand car.
    3. Know who is the seller: Next job is to explore who your seller is? Find out the showrooms that sell the second-hand car. They should also be able to give you clear information like the age of the vehicle, past claim experience, damages were done, several miles covered by the vehicle, variant of the vehicle, and others.
    4. Check the condition of the car: In person, check the condition of the car. Look for the minor flaws which you may not like later. Consider the purpose to which you will put your car for use.
    5. Verify all the documents: Carefully check and verify all the documents like registration certificate and no dues certificate. The latter is issued from financer if the vehicle was purchased on loan.
    6. Insurance: Buying ca insurance policy for the second hand car is very important. There are many insurance companies providing Second Hand Car Insurance online. Compare the quotes and coverage offered by different insurance companies before finalising the policy.
    7. Name Transfer: After everything is finalized, you should then immediately file for the name transfer with the RTO. After this, you will be able to apply for insurance cover.

    Make sure you do not miss either of the steps before you buy your second-hand car in India.


  2. Engine is the part which converts energy from fuel to mechanical force. To maintain good performance of the engine you need to select engine oil with care. For new Royal Enfield Classic 350 you need to go for 15W50 grade engine oil. There are multiple engine oil brands available in the market but there are only few which delivers quality performance. Also the engine oil quantity depends on the size of the engine and the design of the bike. There are different types of bike oil available at Gandhar oil. You can select as per your engine requirement.

     


  3. The engine is a component that converts the energy from the fuel into the mechanical force used for riding a bike. Even if your bike has all other parts from the top-notch manufacturer, if the engine is not maintained well, then it's going to ruin your riding quality. With such a significant number of motor oils for a bike accessible in the market, it is a moving activity to pick the best bike oil for the bike. 

    But at first, you should know that for bike there is always one grade recommended that is 10w30, 10w40, 10w50 and the second specification is apisj, apisl, apism, apisn. The api grade is for engine performance as well as its requirement.

    Honda Hornet 160r contains a high rev performance engine, and most of the manufacturers are nowadays recommending for energy conserving oils. These oils have low friction and more cooling abilities. The engine oils with high viscosity are not much energy conserving.

    The recommended grade for Honda Hornet 160r is 10w30, and you can use 10w40, 10w50, 5w30, etc. but you cannot put 20w50, 15w40 in this bike.

  5. Hi all, I would like to mention my experience on which engine oil is best for your TVS Apache RTR 200. First let us understand what grade of engine oil suits more to Apache 200. 10W30 is the engine oil grade for Apache 200. Also the engine oil should be changed at regular interval to keep up with good engine performance. Now coming to the brand of engine oil go for DIVYOL SPIN X3 10W30 and is probably the best engine oil in the market. If you ride at extreme condition then the engine oil should be changed at regular interval. Otherwise it would lead to heating of engine and reduce mileage. Special care should be taken during rainy season, regular break check should be carried out. Ride safe! and do wear HELMET :)


  6. Hey there, I would like to share my experience with you all... that how I struggled in finding the right and the best engine oil for my Hyundai Vitara Brezza. Since after driving for about more than 15k kilometers I was not quite satisfied with the engine oil which I used during my first 2 services because of which I faced several issues which worsen the car performance. Mainly I faced heating problem and also the mileage given by my Hyundai has gone down. Since it was my initial servicing I was totally confused for which brand engine oil should I go for. Then my mechanics from whom I used to do my bike servicing suggested me to go for Divyol engine oil by Gandhar. Since then all the problems related to heating and mileage was solved also there is an improvement in the mileage. You can get different variants in engine oil depending on the user manual. This is how I came across the perfect engine oil for my Hyundai Vitara Brezza.

    No difference in vibrations. Engine noise , hmm actually I heard another swift which had come for service for 30k kms, he was using synthetic from day 1, I didnt feel any difference, I might be wrong in this.1 difference I felt was in high speeds, initially when the car had synthetic and the mileage was around 8500kms, I touched 145kmph and it was smooth. But after switching to mineral touching 130 I felt an unrefined drive or in other words it didnt feel as smooth as it was initially. But no change in daily city driving. Plus the saving u can see for urself. Anyhow maruti has set a service interval of 10k kms so mineral oil is a gud option.

    If you want better performance, then you can switch to semi-synthetic oil. They provide benefits of synthetic oil but less costly. I am using DIVYOL SPECTRO SX 20W50 (https://bit.ly/2T4yYqX). I am getting smooth, noise-free engine function at pocket-friendly price. Just give it a try and let us all know your experience.


  8. Hello ! I have been using TVS Jupiter form last 4 years now. I always used synthetic oil as I was worried about my scooter condition. However, considering my low usage of the vehicle (20Km oer day), my mechanic told me to switch to cost efficient semi-synthetic oil. He recommended Divyol by gandhar oil as first preference. Has anyone using it ? Also my bike is working fine and I have not done any major modification.


  9. Tips mentioned above covers all the safety measure. I would suggest you to use engine oils that are specifically designed for bike. Depending on your usage you can choose between synthetic and semi synthetic oil. As a consumer, i myself is usin Divyol by gandhar oil. My daily travelling is 30kms. I found semi synthetic for my level of usage quite cost effective. for heavy usage, synthetic oils are preferred. However, prices of these oils are comparatively high.

    You also need to check the oil level regularly to avoid any excessive wear. 


  10. I've been looking for best engine oil for my TVS Apache but has not still found the best for my bike. My garage mechanic suggested to go for either Motul or Divyol and I tried both. Since then there is major improvement in my bike performance also the heating problem is solved. Should I continue with this brand and which is most preferable from this two. Do give your suggestions. 


  11. Been looking for Best engine oil for Royal Enfield classic since long time. I tried for Motul, Castrol but still it ended up with disappointment because the mileage and performance was not that much improved. Recently one of my mechanic suggested to go for Mobil 1 or Divyol engine oil for my 350. Should I try this brand because I have heard about their positive feedback. Is it good to go??
