Okey dokey, so they claim to be putting in new info for some new gasoline engine oils. What effect would that have on Delvac 1 5W-40, which is a HD diesel oil?

I personally have not had reason to check any Mobil datasheets in about 8 months. I usually save the HTML if a web page, or download the Acrobat pdf if available. This had me concerned, so I immediately checked out the specs for Delvac 1 at: http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXE2CVLMOMobilDelvac1_5W-40.asp I was floored! This is Advertising Copy, not meaningful technical data. No HTHS, no CCS, no MRV. Hey Mobil, WHAT GIVES?? For comparison, I checked out the Delvac 1300 Super specs at: http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/NAUSE2CVLMOMobilDelvac1300Super.asp And they DID have HTHS and some CCS/MRV results. Not as much technical data as I would prefer, but WAY more than the Delvac 1 "data." I couldn't believe it! I then checked out the specs for Mobil 1 0W-30 at: http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXENPVLMOMobil1_0W-30.asp Just what exactly is going on here?? Does Mobil figure we're too dumb to read/understand technical data?? I can see that attitude with generic automotive oils, but NOT with their high-end Delvac 1! It looks like some artsy-fartsy Graphic Artist designed the "technical" specifications page, then at the last minute threw out all that ugly data with abbreviations and lots of decimal places. Hey Mobil, I need way more than "pour point" here! BTW Mobil, "pour point" is of no relevance to me. I need MRV data. Since Monday is MLK Day, I imagine the Mobil techline is closed. I'm calling Tuesday to complain. This is insulting! Glad you brought it to our attention. For your reference, I started my search at: http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/Products_Services/Lubricants/Lubricants_Collection.asp

This is really pissing me off. I want to see the data for all of these. Plus, the NOACK data used to be available on the Esso Mobil Australia page-- not any more! They've converted to the horrible datasheets too. I don't dare call Mobil tech support, we've all seen that gets us 5 different answers for 5 calls. ferb!

Well, now I'm REALLY concerned. I called the Mobil techline and the guy on the phone was a DUFUS. I wanted to know the MRV BPT of Mobil Delvac 1. Remember, this is their el-primo HD commercial diesel engine oil. It's $$$ and is supposed to meet all the builder approvals. The guy said: "Well, it pours at -49." "So what's the Borderline Pumping Temp?" "It pours at -49, that's it." "No, I'm not asking what the Pour Point is. That number is useless to me. I want to know the Mini Rotary Viscometer Borderline Pumping Temperature as defined by ASTM D4684." "The motor is a rotary vis-o-meter what??" "CLICK!" Just to calm down after that "amusing" incident I brushed my cat so hard he went bald! [freaknout]
