They use the orange can of death on the 6.7 cummins. I used to help out the ups guy at my work and you could see the filter. It didn't get changed often either as it had some oil running down the side, so I knew it was always the same one

+1 on the Safety-Kleen. Maybe the America's Choice/Performance Plus line though?

If it's true, it's a testament to Saftey Kleen lubes. AFAIK it's always been a fine oil, maybe lacking in the volatility dept. They never listed NOACK as anything lower than <15%, but that was during eariler, obsolete API specs. Walmart over here still sells the conventional America's Choice as the house brand, and their Synthetic (Performance Plus equiv) was sourced from Petro-Canada- possibly still is. Not sure who blends the Performance Plus (synthetic range) for the US market.

Delo 15w40 last time I looked. It was Delvac 1300 before that. I think Automotive bids out the contract every few years.

Our govt. dept. fleet uses http://unimarkoil.com/allproducts/unimark-synthetic-blend-engine-oil/ 10w30. (Except our newer chevy 5.3s and dodge, sorry Ram 3.6s get napa 0w20 and 5w20 while they're within warranty.)

We have been doing service work at UPS , since about 1981 . At that time , I think most / all of their small package vans were gasoline .

Now , they are most / all diesel . And , of course , their semi tractors are all diesel .

So , I would thing they are using an oil appropriate for diesel engines .

"Generic Label" Citgo is often the cheapest to buy in bulk (drums) so I see a lot of fleet service places use that oil.

A big company like UPS can get better oil (Rotella, Delo, Delvac) because they can negotiate a much better price than a small business or fleet can.

Safety Kleen makes diesel oil too; for Wal-Mart. I just bought a pail last night.

here in Flagstaff they use service pro,
i've seen this truck at at the service center a few times. and i've seen the service pro drums.
http://vandepol.us/i-need-oil/automotive-lubricants/
so one would guess they use what they can source locally for a decent price.

Sure it is.

It's cheaper and doesn't come in quarts.
