After using chevron delo almost day one in my truck I decided to save 6 bucks and get the delvac since it was on sale. I figured it's all the same now since they switched to th at ck4 stuff. Opinions?

Bought a gram ultra also, so I saved probably 14 dollars for this oil change.

I bought 3 Gallon of Delvac 1 ESP for $20.63 each and then there was $12.00 a gallon rebate. My real cost ended up costing me $8.63 gallon. This was at Walmart.com in December,2017. I will be good for 1.5 oil change as I have another Gallon sitting in Garage.

I always stick with the delo cause it was cheaper than the the other two. Every time oil is on sale at Wal-Mart, they never have any.

I haven't gotten the Delvac 1300 CK-4, but I did use some Delvac Extreme syn blend CK4 in place of the Shaeffer CK4 I normally use. The Delvac looked like a spitting image of the Schaeffer when I did a UOA on it at then next change. I would imagine the 1300 is right up there in performance as it always has been.


Freedom is not about having the choice to do what you want, but the choice to do what you ought.

I used Delo 400 exclusively for 15 years, when I moved to Idaho Delvac 1300 was $3.00 cheaper per 5 gallon pail. Since then my Ford and Chevy have been on Delvac, 9 years now, and they said they don't care...lol

They are both pretty equal.

Opinions? Yeah - brand does not matter.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

I started off using Delvac Super 1300 in my Semi with a 12.7 Series 60 Detroit. I don't run a UOA with every pm service, but after my motor broke in, my UOAs looked great, and I experienced very little oil consumption. Almost a year and a half ago, I switched to Chevron Delo 400, only because it's easier for me to find at Wal-Mart, and that I prefer to use a semi synthetic 10W30 HDEO during the coldest part of winter. Wal-Mart doesn't stock Delvac Extreme 10W30, but they do stock Delo 400 XLE 10W30. In fact, if they did stock Delvac Elite, I'd still be using Mobil Delvac. In my opinion, Delvac is an excellent HDEO.


And when I switched from Delvac to Delo, my motor showed zero difference when I ran a UOA, and I still experience very little consumption between pms. So, in my non-scientific opinion, they may as well be the same products packaged in different jugs. smile

Delvac 1300 Super is consistently priced slightly cheaper than Delo. I'd be happier using the lower priced product. grin
