    according to the kms travelled your engine will be happy with 20w50 motor oil havoline. stay away from synthetics as they are good for newer engines
    Your grandchildren will likely find it incredible - or even sinful - that you burned up a gallon of gasoline to fetch a pack of cigarettes!

    I dont know about pindi/isb.

    Mobil super 1000 is mineral and 2000 is semi synthetic. Dont go for any synthetic ones as your engine is old.

    other wise go for havoline

    Should opt for SAE 20W-50 (Mineral) for your engine considering the mileage and possible carbon deposits/clearance issue. Using a low viscosity oil with strong detergents (semi synthetics/synthetics) will break down and dissolve the deposits immediately which might be acting as compression seal between piston and sleeve causing oil reduction and blow by, in some case oil pressure drop may occur.

    My recommendation
    Zic Hiflo (SAE 20W-50) API SM, ODI: 3-4K kms
    Petromin Ultra 7 API SL

    The car is well mantained but I have no idea about its history, the car was being serviced at Toyota Capital. Any of you guys have an idea which oil do they use? Now, I am confused between Petromin ultra and Caltex. Can anyone suggest?
