Delo Oil

Any body use the new DELO 400

I have always purchased my oil from walmart and the recently quit carrying locally the 400 LE found at this link.....
Delo 400 LE SAE 15W-40 | Chevron Lubricants

Seems they have cleared out the shelves for their new product Delo 400 SDE found at this link.....
Delo 400 SDE SAE 15W-40 | Chevron Lubricants

Anybody done any research on their new product? Soap content ect. and compared it to the old?

I have always run the 400 LE in my mercedes 300sd as well as my ford 6.0
I dont necessary want to start an oil battle and what I should be running in my ford because I did do research on the old product so i realize that going with a oil that many do not commonly use in a 6.0 is my choice. I have ran the 400 LE for almost 3 years now in it.

Also I live in Texas

Re: Delo Oil

I've seen a lot of miles put on my grandad's fleet using Delo products!
Also, they say it meets specs, hard to nay say on that unless there's somebody out there who knows better (not me, but hoping somebody will speak up)

Re: Delo Oil

I had the same thing happen to me, except I ordered Delo 400 from Napa, and when they brought it to me, it was the new "SDE" with Isosyn. I guess they no longer carry the old "LE" anymore?

Either way, its working great in my 7.3.

Re: Delo Oil

If I remember correctly the Cj-4 spec is what 7.3l and 6.0l require. But I am getting older.

Re: Delo Oil

Great! Thanks for the responses. I am going to go ahead and run the new stuff. I think it will be okay. I know a guy who is running the new stuff in his 7.3 as well but I mean I guess its too soon to know about the quality unless you are really keen on knowing what to look for in the data sheets. I thought I knew enough but I learned all that so long ago I cant remember what to look for anymore really. I am just going to go with it and not look back. if it meets spec then should be okay is what ima tell myself haha

so funny how picky we are with these choices but it is important i know... funny how they have oil now for cars that suppose to last 20k miles...that seems crazy to me i would be scared if i had a car to do that but i guess thats just from old school mind and dino oil use for so long. and then being nervous about any miles over 4k between changes on my 6.0

Re: Delo Oil

i never used it. i have used valvoline 15-40 all fleet in all my vehicles for the past 40 years or so.
even the local ford dealer uses it in the older vehicles that do not require synthetic oil.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.

Re: Delo Oil

I have used it in multiple engines and I put Delo and Rotella T on the same level. Many years ago my dad became a Delo convert and has used it in his 7.3 and everything else on the farm from irrigation pumps to tractors to his Cummins powered Kenworth.

Re: Delo Oil

Delo and Rotella 15-40 have a reputation for less blowby than others IMO, I have experienced that and that is what sold my dad on Delo years ago.

Re: Delo Oil

Technically not on Ford's approved list for the PSD.
Delo has removed a lot of what made the oil great in the past to comply with the CK-4 specification. Mobil did as well. The only "approved" oils on the Ford interactive list are Shell Rotella and Valvoline Premium Blue.
Ford has an interactive list you can search for "approved " oils.
Google "motorcraft chemicals and lubricants catalog"
Let us know how the run of Delo works out.
Will you be doing a used oil analysis?
