its a synthetic oil, its supposed to be really good stuff, but its pricey

i have never seen it at any of the autoparts stores around my house but Atwoods does, at least the one I go to does

George, my phone is a piece. I'm trying to hold out till the end of contract.

I got your message late last night.

I have run Delo, Rotella, Delvac or whatever it is. I see no difference in ET or MPG. Use what's around you...
