alarmguy, I think that the HDEOs in the list used to claim to meet or exceed the Allison C4 spec, because that's the older version of their certification. The new version of their wet clutch certification is "Allison TES439". And even tho Mobil Delvac isn't claiming to meet this spec in that document, I feel like there is enough information out there to prove that the claim still exists.... like this one --> http://products.petrochoice.com/sys...

I only checked one which I did use at times and I am not seeing the rating here that you have in your spreadsheet, example ... Mobil Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 engine oil meets or exceeds the requirements of: API CK-4, CJ-4, CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, CH-4 / SN ACEA E9, E7 Caterpillar ECF-3 Cummins CES 20086, 20081 Isuzu DEO (w/ DPD-equipped vehicles) JASO DH-2 MAN M 3275-1 Mobil Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 engine oil is approved by the following OEMs: Detroit Fluids Specification 93K222 Deutz DQC II-10 LA Mack EOS-4.5, EO-O Premium Plus MB-Approval 228.31 Renault Trucks RLD-3 MAN M 3575 Volvo VDS-4.5, VDS-4
