    My bulk dealer says no more Delvac 1???

    I was on the phone with my Esso bulk dealer looking for some D1. He said that it is soon to be discontinued and replace solely with D1 ESP (in Canada at least). Does anybody have any more info or my dealer just misinformed?

    Getting a 6.0 powerstroke and have some XD3 0w-30

    Like the title says I am getting an 04 or 05 Excursion with the PSD 6.0. I still have 15L of 0w-30 XD3, does anybody see a problem using it? Would you save it for the winter and just get some CO-OP 0w-40 for the summer, or what would you use for the summer?

    +4 ATF in a t-case that calls for Mercon

    I have a ford explorer with a BW-1354 t-case and I was wondering out loud if I could use +4 in it, owners manual calls for Mercon. I ask because I have lots of the stuff and it would be easier than running to the parts store 45 miles away to get something synthetic.
