My .2 worth.:
Just did my oil in my 8v92, Mobil Delvac 1240 40wt is what I purchased.
It is the same product that DD sells.
Purchased through Windward Petroleum here in Westbrook Maine.
We still have a pile of strokers running around here in the woods and on the water.
Some guys will only use the CF-2 oil and others just don't care. My dad had several 6V units in excavators they have had 15-40 rotella in them for years with no issue...screaming all day at WOT

I am sure people are using other oils. It probably doesn't matter if you are not concerned with oil consumption, valve deposits, and leaks.

Tell me, how does oil on the high side of ash content contribute to engine leaks or excessive consumption?

What would be the expected result if ash clogged particulate filters?

Do they actually use the term "ash content?" I wonder since there is no ash contained in motor oils in the can...

Just got off of phone with Reeder Distributors here in Ft Worth.

I inquired about the Delvac 1240 and he has ONE case of 4 gallons at $57.80.

I asked about the order capability, and he also told me he can get Chevron Ursa Super Plus 40.

He will email the information....

That makes some sense to me. There is NO ash in oil. There IS ash after oil burns - it is the residue left when there are non-combustible minerals in the oil, so the ash listed in a guaranteed analysis is actually a measurement of those minerals, determined by incinerating the oil. When oil gets past the rings and burns, it leaves a contaminating residue; how much residue is a direct relationship to the ash level.

People who are told to buy low-ash cat foods often ask me why there is ash in cat food. Same answer applies - there isn't any.
