Anyone know what the ASTM D-4742 results are for Delvac 1 in its current CI-4 formulation? (Or other "long life/extended drain" oils like GC, M1 0W-40, Amsoil) For D1, all I could find was 905 (CG) and 829 (CH) in this thread. (For comparison, Castrol GTX 5W-30 is 163, and M1 5W-30 is 368) Thanks, Jason

Wow, the Thin Film Oxygen Uptake (TFOUT) is a SEVERE test: Run at 160 C in an oxygen pressurized vessel along with a metal catalyst, a fuel catalyst, and water to determine oxidation stability. So the older Delvac 1's had values +800 while PCEO are sometimes under 200? I guess that's why Mobil claims "for severe extended oil drains far beyond the manufacturer recommendations." Wish they would publish the TFOUT test scores for every oil. Jerry

D1 CH-4 829, D1 CG-4 905. Next down was Royal Purple Long Rider CH-4 was 701. Schaeffer S7000 CH-4 225. Unfortunately I don't have CI-4 figures. Same sheets also have ASTM D-2670 Falex Vee block wear test. Lowest wear LE 8800 Ultra (3), then Sunoco Super C and Minuteman AGIP All-Guard (5) followed by RP Long Rider and Schaeffers Supreme 7000 (6)

I just wish that Mobil would publish specs they previously had available. I want to compare, and now i can't. Definately leaves a sour taste. ferb!

Hey Ferb: Boy have you got that right! Either they think we're too dumb to understand the specs, or they want to treat us like little children. Either way it leaves a sour taste for me too. Jerry

TFOUT is one bench test. Then there is Cold Crank Simulator, High Temperature/High Shear, NOACK Volatility, Pour Point, Total Base Number,-- would seem that one maybe shouldn't select an oil based upon 1 lab test----
