Re: schaefer or mobil delvac

Either of the three are pretty premium products and you can't really go wrong with any of them. $25 a gallon is a pretty good deal on Delvac 1, usually I see it for 28-35 per gallon around here.

I ran Rotella for a couple changes in my 6.4, then tried switching to Schaeffers 9000. Its awesome stuff, truck idles quieter and just feel super smooth. Wouldn't think about switching back, it is kinda spendy though. I usually change about every 4-4500 miles.
