Up until now the only M1 Delvac I've ever heard of was the 1300 series 10w30 and 15w40. Well I wanted to find out more about Delvac and my truck will be due for an oil change in the next couple hundred miles or so. So I did a search on M1's site and found Delvac 5w40. I wasn't aware of it up until tonight. I think If I can find it in stores I'll give it a go. It's a high performance synthetic diesel oil. Here's the link, what's everyone here think of it?? Thanks,,,,AR http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXE2CVLMOMobilDelvac1_5W-40.asp#ApplicationsTitle

Mobil1 Truck and SUV is the same as Delvac1, but its in quart bottles. Walmart carries the Truck and SUV by the quart for 4.77 a quart. I have seen gallons of Delvac1 for 29.99 at truck stops. JH

If you have a local Truck-Pro or CAT (CAT Synthetic is re-branded D1) you can get it from them. But I have never seen it as cheap in gallon jugs as the $19.08 you can buy 4 QT of the M1 T&S branded version for. Gene

Buying Mobil 1 Truck & SUV 5W-40 is the cheapest way to get Delvac 1. I guess Mobil figures that it's cheaper to discount Delvac 1 slightly to capitalize on the Mobil 1 brand name than to make a whole new formulation to target truck and SUV owners.

Ok I was pretty well convinced that Delvac and T&SUV were more or less the same but that statement threw me off, no offense but your saying that T&SUV and Delvac are 2 entirely different oils? or is "entirely" too extreme, maybe just different? [Confused]

Anyone know if Cat dino 15W40 is really Delvac 1300? Just bought some for the Cat generators at work. If I remember correctly the bill was around $57 for a case of 6 gallons. Still cheaper at Wally World. [Cheers!]

At one time I was told the Dino was Delo 400 but that was years ago. I have no idea what it is now. The Silver Bottle Synthetic is Delvac 1. Gene

Steve, I saw that VOA and am still trying to decide what it means. Earlier VOA as well as Mobil statements indicate they are the same oil. I think we need to wait on other VOA on the newer runs of T&S and D1 to confirm that Mobil has diverged the formulas. Gene

Maybe we should call it "D2". [Big Grin]
