Default oil for two stroke Detroit Diesel

I just did some research with Detroit Diesel on oil type for two cycle diesels and found results that need to go on the forum to update the two cycle owners. The forum data is out of date Delo 100 40 wt .8% ash content is no longer available. Dell 400 40 wt 1.5% is. Detroit Diesel said this oil is ok for two cycle engines.
Cheers

Sorry but Delo says that the 400 oil is not recommended for 2 cycle engines.

Hi Robert,

I just got off the phone with Chevron Technical support and the fellow I talked to asked me to post that they are still making Delo 100 for use in 2 stroke Detroit Diesels.

For what it’s worth, I use MTU Power Guard Oil which is stocked by my local Detroit Diesel shop:

I buy in 55 gal drums. Sold the 82 with 6V92.
I'm stuck with about 45 gal left over.

Hello all I also talked to Chevron tech support and they said that Delo 100 was the preferred oil for two strokes. Than I asked for their suppliers in Albq NM
Brewer oil. They no longer stick or have access to Delo 100 even in 55 gal drums.
Than I called Stewart and Stevenson in Albq. An authorized Detroit Diesel dealer and spoke to the mechanic who works on 6v92 engines.
He said Delo 400 40 Wtis what they now reccomend instead of Delo 100 which is hard to find and been replaced by Delo 400.
I believe the authorized dealer rather than Chevron tech support who only suppies lubricant but has no direct knowledge of the engines.
We can agree to disagree.
But this is what I found out. For those in doubt call a Detroit Diesel authorized shop and let me know what you ascertain.
Cheers

For questions about 2 cycle Detroit Diesel Engines you can go directly to the manufacturer: www.mtu-online.com

For a copy of the 2018 MTU fluids and lubricants specifications go to www.mtu-online.com and look for "Technical info".

Interesting but Detroit Diesel not MTU make the two cycle 6v92 TA. I read their spec for 2 cycle diesel engines. Delo 100 cf_2 is not readily available any more.
And the engine manuf says to use Delo 400 40 wt. What to do find some remote source and have it trucked in?
Also ash difference between Delo 100 and Delo 400 is .7% I doubt it is a leathal increase.

Thoughts
Cheers

Actually, MTU is "Detroit Diesel-2 cycle".

If you go to Detroit Diesel's web site and look at Legacy Engines you'll find this:

For classic 2-Cycle engines (Series 53, 71, 92 and 149), visit the MTU Detroit Diesel 2-Cycle website
