Mobil Delvac 1 0w-40 Synthetic

Just wondering, I live on west coast canada here. Would it be hard on the ol 7.3 running the mobil d1 all year round? Wintertime (for all you non Celsiusers) only runs really between 29-42F summer we are looking at 51-75F. Hardest this thing works is hauling a camper and towing a boat up some mountain passes. Got 3 cases of the stuff sitting in my shop right now, just wondering. Any input much appreciated!

If it is this oil---->
Mobil Canada | Heavy Duty Engine Oils | Mobil DelvacESP 0W-40

I wouldn't even blink an eye to pour it in...

This says it all--->
Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 0W-40 meets or exceeds the following industry and builder specifications:
API CJ-4/CI-4 PLUS/CI-4/CH-4/SM
Caterpillar ECF-3
Cummins CES 20081, 20076

Great Oil!!!

IMHO: I think the future of oils is based on the 0W oils... We are starting to see more and more of them... Though they are all full synthetic... It's the future... JMHO... All great oils...

The dealer I go to when I'm too lazy to do my own oil change puts in Delvac 5W40 year round. Although we have not had our usual real cold weather so far this winter I have never had starting issues with this weight.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Anything with the mobil name on it is going to be a good product IMHO. This looks to be no exception, a operating viscosity of 15.2 should give you plenty of protection in the summer and the 0w rating should be able to handle some pretty good weather. Looks like a great oil, expensive I am sure but looks good.

Yes it is, but luckily I don't have to worry about the cost as there is literally none.
