Noticed the Delo XLE 15W40 Synblend on sale at Walmart for $12.55 a gallon.

The TBN & HTHS numbers look good and the cold pour point is relatively close to most 5w40 full synthetics on the market.

Just haven't seen any UOA's or even VOA's on the forum for it yet. Usually just Delo 15W40 SDE & 5W40 XSP which even with the reduced Zinc & Phosphorus the wear numbers were about same.

Anyone running it or plan to run and send in a UOA?

That can't be the real pour point, can It? Many 5W40 have higher pour point than that!
Interested in results as well.

Could be since unlike the winter rating the pour point is not a reliable indicator of cold weather performance. Apparently the cranking viscosity must increase significantly at -25C.

I'd imagine the XLE 10W30 is extremely similar composition, and there are multiple VOAs on here. Although, I feel the need to say VOAs are not a valid indicator of how an oil will perform in a given engine. Many oils with very similar VOAs can perform very differently in a given engine.

Just browse the PCMO section to see how someone replaced one SN oil with a different SN oil and now has all kinds of fabulous subjective things to say about the new oil. Also you'll find plenty who think that a UOA that showed an increase of 3 ppm Fe on their report means they need to get their old favorite brand of oil back in their engine ASAP or it will expire shortly thereafter. If the oil meets your engine's specs, use it if you want. After specs being met, on-time maintenance is infinitely more important than the number of dollars spent on fluids and filters.

I have 3 gallons of the Delo 10W30 XLE and 1 Gallon of the Delo 15W40 XLE in my 6.0 PSD right now. Kinda made a little "Blend" to get a slightly better HTHS number for the Florida summer coming up. Truck runs awesome on it! As many of you know, the 6.0 and other PSD engines are really particular about oils used since it is what fires the injection system.


Just say NO to thin oils and M1!

A UOA of that would be interesting to see how the HEUI system shears it.

Yep, I've run several gallons of it since I bought it, used it in the Subies, and stepson's camshaft eater (err, Ram w/Hemi) and it's run great in all of them. OTTOMH I can't remember if I've had a UOA yet, but it's a really, really good oil and dual-rated (CK4/SN) so it's really a whole-fleet kinda deal.

Meets MTU type 3.1 too. How cool is that? I have a hankerin' to try Delo 600 next time around. I have 2 unopened pails of Delo 400 5W40 waiting for winter.

I agree, may get off my cheap but and send a sample out once I get to 5000 miles. It takes awhile though as this truck is only used for hay and horse hauling... we usually put about 5-8,000miles a year on it.

Totally missed it scrolling through page after page, saw a lot of SDE and XSP but missed this one.
