Seattle Area Delo 400 Non LE

Hey guys,

Have any of you guys in the Seattle area had any luck finding the good old original Delo 400 15w-40, not this new LE stuff? I've looked around my usual places and the auto parts stores and they all just have the new LE stuff.

Yea I may have to check a few more Costcos when I'm in the area. The Issaquah and downtown Seattle Costco, as well as Kirkland just had the new stuff, but I always drive up and down the corridor so maybe i can find it elsewhere.

My guess is to just keep searching. IDK why Delo went to all LE type - The LE is not approved for some of the engines we sell.

I think it's for the new diesels, lower ash so it won't clog up particulate filters. I always had good luck with the good old fashoned Delo and that diesel oil comparison thread got me thinking I want the original back. I may just switch to Rotella or Delvac 1300 Super if I can't find Delo. If I do find some, I will be sure to post in this thread where I found it in case other members are looking for it as well.
