shopping for CJ-4 for my 2016 Powerstroke 6.7 and bought some Delvac 15-40, however saw the above. Anyone know anything about it? Should I buy a bunch or should I stick to Delo, Delvac and Rotella?

My truck is relatively new and have been running Delo 15-40, but all I can find is the new CK-4 Delo.

I took pics but cannot figure out how to get it posted right now.

What do you think?

If your manual states CJ-4 and 15W-40 is within specs - buy lots.

Castrol products are quality.

Thanks

I mistakenly started another thread without doing my search first... My bad... Here is that oil. Seems like a bargain to me. Especially considering Castrol GTX reputation for getting the old Volvo over the 3 million mile mark.

You must be lucky in your area, was at wally world today and it's $17.98 a gallon for Castrol GTX.

Although I also stopped at Menard's today for a humidifier filter and then looked over the oil section, the Valvoline Premium Blue Conventional was $13.67 a gallon every day price.

I took the picture above in February when I saw the pallet of that oil at WalMart. Since then it disappeared completely and I was unable to find it anywhere. Was anyone recently able to buy that oil? If yes - from where and how does the price compare to the picture above?

At least one Walmart by me has this deal and I've been wondering about it lately as well, but for my 7.3 PSD. If I didn't have a stash of Mobil 1 TDT I got for $15.88/gallon, I might stock up on it. Would probably be as good as any for a summer OCI since I hate having to plug in the heater all the time in the winter.
