Thanks for getting it done!

I was hoping the engine cleaning Calcium was higher.

What do you use it in?

It has a bit of magnesium to offset the lower calcium. I was expecting to see more moly in the Delo.

Solid TBN too! Higher than several touted "car" synthetics.

Thanks for sharing!!

I wonder if this is a bottle of the older blend???? Both Moly and Calcium look very, very low for the latest Delo.

Seems like a weak additive package unless there is a magic ingredient.

Magnesium offsets the lower calcium, boron offsets the lower moly. Looks like a very well rounded CJ4 additive package to me. Zinc and Phos look little low, but I think that's Blackstone.

I would rather have the higher boron and lower moly as well, and with ashless detergents I'm sure this Delo is as robust as ever.

As an interesting aside take a look at the wealth of info in the following patent app. from Exxon-Mobil
http://www.wipo.int/pctdb/en/wo.jsp?wo=2006132964&IA=US2006021445&DISPLAY=DESC

Think Ill post that one in the interesting articles section too.

Also, This text has even more information.

I think moly is a killer additive, though apparently expensive. I was just pointing out that the drop in moly just wasn't a drop in moly. Some people seem to really zero in on moly around here, there's more than one way to skin the cat.

I was using this in the Ford 460 in my (old) motorhome.

I wonder what the heck is their "ISO Syn" technology?????

I have a bottle of that to be used on my boat (with an old Volvo-Penta diesel engine)

It means the base oils are hydroprocessed.
