Whats the word on this oil? How come you don't hear about this oil in this forum? I know a lot of people use RTS 5W-40 in their gassers. Myself included. It seems this Delo is even harder to find then most 5W-40 oils. Is that the reason? I haven't priced this stuff out. I would assume it would be pretty close to RTS, and other group III synthetics.
If I could find it, you'd be I'd use it over the RTS. I'm running Delo 15w-40 in my diesel, but it's just too thick for my Sohc engine that I'm currently running RTS in.

I've been to truckstops all over this country and have never seen Delo Synthetic on any shelves. The only way I know to get it is direct from your local Chevron oil distibutor. Hammer
The reason that you don't hear much about it around here is because it is a group III oil. Some of the board members here go NUTS and have kinipshins about group III oils. It has a very good additive package and seems like an excellent oil.
Stuart's Auto, the parts house nearest me, carries the 5w40 Delo. I-5 south, N. Salem/Fairgrounds exit, turn right and go 1/4 mile. It appears GC fans drive even longer distances in search of the Green.
The problem is that the conniption-prone (you know who you are...) dismiss Group III base stocks as "merely dino".
Can a Group III oil perform as well as a Group IV oil with the same exact add pack? [I dont know]
