You can easily run 5K on the Delo. There are many folks running it and it has shown very good results on used oil analysis reports for the 7.3L.

Re: Cheveron DELO 400

I ran my 2002 7.3, I started out using Amsoil, but at 100k, I started having iron problems. I switched to Delo 400 and never have any more issues. When I sold my 7.3 at 182k, it was running as strong as ever. Delo is good stuff and most all of my logging buddies use Delo 400, many have over 500k on their logging trucks; which is very tough duty. If I had a diesel now, I would use Delo 400 15-40, period.
