Thinking about using 15w-40 Delo

Times are tough, been using Schaeffers and really like it but, Delo is 9.00 a gallon. Anybody have anything bad to say about the Delo?

Dello does just fine in these engines

Oreilly auto parts has our oil filter for $13 where I live. The brand is Microguard. I use it

Yeah, I don't see many using Delo, but then again I haven't seen anybody trashing it either. I see a lot of people trashing of oils like Rotella which I know is probably used by 100 times more people than Delo, but until I go back to the Scheaffers, I'd like a solid inexpensive choice.

Delo is a very good reputable oil, I feel better at work when people choose that over rotella...rotella scares me not bashing it cuz it gets good reviews I just don't like it for my own reasons, delo is an excellent choice imo.

You can also get the 15w40 Motorcraft oil for $12.50/5qt jug....I use that all summer. I also found Mystic 10w30 cj4 oil for $16/2gal jug. Right around $40 for an oil change, not to shabby. After 2k miles the Mystic is looking good.

I see some complaining about the performance of the Motorcraft, don't have anything against it personally, just wonder about it making it to the 5000 mile OCI without some shearing and breakdown in performance like some complain about with the Rotella. I saw where one guy preferred the Delo because he had problems with other oils shearing due to his dual HPOP, even many of the synthetics. Seemed to be a pretty good endorsement for the Delo.

I used the Motorcraft on my last change because:

a). Wlamart was out of the Mobile 1 I normally use (5w40 Turbo Diesel Full Synth)

b). My Ford Dealer recommended it

and

c). It was very cheap.

I've used Rotella and Delo in the past. Rotella is very good stuff with a great track record (I use it in everything from my motorcycles to trucks and cars).

I probably won't use the Ford Motorcraft stuff going forward, but I don't think its a bad choice. And I suspect is semi-synthetic, so it might even be Delo or Rotella re-branded (as many of these "OEM" oils are).

You could very well be right, but based on what oil people tell me, Mobil may not get the next Motorcraft oil contract and someone else may be bottleing it next. Also, I wonder how much of the formula is specified by the purchaser which in this case would be Motorcraft. Don't know how accurate any of my comments are but I often wonder.
