Delo 5w40 Synthetic Anyone?

http://www.deloperformance.com/docs/...ell_041310.pdf

I have seen a lot of good reviews for T6 and Valvoline synthetics but not as much about the Delo in the 6.0's. I was at Bi-Mart(local NW store) and I saw it for the first time there, priced at $25.97/gal. Just wondering if anyone has anything good or bad to say about. I'm interested because it is local to me and easy to go purchase. thanks

Most of the good reviews come from ones that used 15w-40 and switched to a 5w-40. Price makes it even nicer.

I use it, and like it so far I am coming up on my first change. I think about 6 months into using it I noticed easier smoother starts. I am running it for 1 yr or about 10k miles, which ever comes first. Everyday driver not much towing.

I "second" the ONLY Fords Filters. Thats all i use

If I could find 5w40 Delo I'd run it.

Good to hear the positive feed back. I was excited when I found it here in town for a reasonable price and not on sale.

I used to use conventional DELO 15W-40 alot in its CI+4 form...and it was good oil for Cummins Diesels and ACERT Cats with HUEI injectors. Came factory in some Volvo/Cummins trucks. I've seen Rotella T6, Amsoil 5W-40, Mobil Turbo Diesel Truck (same as Mobil 1 Delvac Syn), Valvoline Premium Blue Synthetic, and Citguard Synthetic 5W-40 for sale. And perhaps a few others like Mystic synthetic.

But I've never actually seen the DELO synthetic although I've seen its product data sheet online. I'd buy it if I had access to it without ordering.
