The Rotella is correct, the now depleting Delo 100 is correct.

The Exxon I know nothing about nor the mystic.

Chevron Texaco URSA Super Plus is .85

I note that the Delvac 1240 is specifically formulated for DD 2-strokes, per this: http://www.ulei-mobil.ro/pdf/MobilAu...240D%20pds.pdf

Available here, at least: http://thelubricantstore.com/mobil-d...1240-4x1g.html

One unfortunate fact is that the US branches of the oil companies are much more reticent about supplying hard technical data than their overseas branches. But, if you find the correct data overseas and then ask specific questions of the US operation, they will usually supply the info you need. Short of that, it tends to be marketing-speak.

The guy at Kelsoe Oil told me that if I couldn't find anything within specs in a few years that he carries aviation blends similar. They are just not marketed like these oils.

That is a good low ash oil. 4 gallons for $65.69 is not...i hope the oil prices go down.

Mobile Delvac 1240
Mobile Delvac 1250

MTU-DD Power Guard SAE 40 with Mobil Delvac Technology should be on that list as well.

I'd bet money that MTU oil IS Delvac 1240.

If anyone has an "in" with a Mobil distributor, how about asking if the 1240 can be readily ordered?

Default CF-2 Cert going away

I was told by my oil supplier that the Detroit branded oil is indeed Delvac 1240 but that he could not sell the branded oil to me only the Mobil Delvac 1240
cost differential was @ 22.00/5 gal over 1240
IF I remember correctly the detroit diesel shop was 114.00/5 gal pail and the delve thru oil supplier was 88.00/5 gal

hope that helps

Yeah I believe that the markup at DD is ridiculous. They obvious do not make oil products.

I have sent an email to the local Mobil dealer here. They are not near me.

They are north of McKinney which means 30ish miles one way.

I will try the Delvac 1240 if I can get it.

I would like to have a few options so I will talk to Kelsoe Oil Company again this morning.
