Is it Delo 100 or Delo 400?

You bought the same oil as the famous AutoZone closeout sale of a few years ago-they were selling Delo 400 SAE 30 for 99 cents/gallon, and I actually picked up a couple for ONE cent a gallon. It has fairly high TBN (around 10) and is thin enough when cold to be in a 20W range. I've started my two IDI diesels with it down to 0F unplugged, but the 7.3 in my sig likes being plugged in & warmed up with it below freezing.

That's great oil for those of use still running older engines.
