Was bargain hunting at my local advance auto and found Peak 15w40 BlueDEF syn blend for $5.xx a gallon. Is this on par with supertech or exact same? Cant seem to find any VOA or UOA on it.

Probably similar. Peak is blended by blue mountain. From other posts it seems like the Peak stuff is pretty decent.

Are you sure it's HDEO motor oil and not BlueDEF diesel exhaust fluid (urea?)? $5.xx/gallon would be a SCREAMING deal for 15W40 syn blend HDEO!

Peak 15W-40 Blue DEF? Blue DEF is not HDEO, it is Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

Which is it?

This?



or this?


If it is the first bottle, then that is a good deal.

I had to go look at my jug, this is what it looks like. In small letters it says 'from the makers of' Blue DEF..lol.


$4.75 a gallon plus Tax.

That's a steal, if I wasn't overloaded with HDEO already I would back the truck up! And use SpeedPerks to get a couple free!

Peak, BlueDEF, etc are "Old World Industries" offerings; they have a diverse product lineup.

That's a great deal on HDEO, regardless of who makes it.

I've used Peak products many times before; always got great UOAs from them. No reason to suspect this would not be as good as their other offerings.

Peak is often found at AAP for good deals; it's a marketing relationship that has developed over several years.

Not listed on the website spec sheet, but you can get a hint because it's on the approved list for Ford PSD.
It has to be at least 1000ppm P. A balanced add pack would then probably have 1100-1300 Z.

Is Ford's performance spec solely based upon phosphorus content (I mean above and beyond being an HDEO in the first place)?

Today, yes. Tomorrow, who knows? Ford has never disclosed the criteria needed to meet the new Powerstroke -F1 specification, so it remains a guessing game. I stocked up on CJ-4 to weather their "irrational storm".
