He also said that the tie up is the evidence of HIM’s commitment towards the customers. The partnership will offer three grades of genuine oil for use in petrol, diesel and CNG variant of the HIM vehicle.
Along with the genuine oil, taxi drivers will also get an opportunity to obtain special discount such as cash back, discounted labors and free checkups. These oils will be the most affordable oil in the market.

The kit result can also give insight into the functioning of the engine so, even minor problems can be detected early. The kit is user friendly and can be used by anyone with just an hour of training. The lab is currently available with service points and mass service camps.
