I've seen black bottles of Delvac 1 5w40, but now we only get Delvac 1 5w40 ESP. Is there a major difference? Is this a good oil to be recommending for turbo engines or other engines that use 5w40? Some customers are being turned off of the ESP because it has a picture of a Semi truck on it and they think im using truck oil thats unsuitable for their cars, be it older BMW, or Mercedes, etc.

Its the same here in Australia, Trucks on some of the Delvac bottles, even the newer ones, but they are starting to push the multi fleet, suitable for gasoline engines thing more with the Delvac MX range. ESP is a different oil if you check the Mobil website. Hows that for a long awaited reply ?
