Mob 1 Truck & SUV now in 5 quart size!

Not sure if this was posted already, but I thought a heads-up in order. LMK if this is already posted and I'll delete this one.

At Wally world, $19.97/5 quarts.

Last time I bought Delvac 1 it was $24/gallon.

Their quarts (Truck & SUV) are $4.88 so that would be $24.40 for 5qts. Hefty savings with the 5qt container.

Bought two today, may go back for a few more tomorrow.

Gotta watch out tho. We have 2 Wal*Mart shops in Madison, One sells that oil in quarts and the other doesn't. Anyways, I'll have to go down there and check it out.

Yeah, the local one here JUST got them in the 5qts, they've previously only sold them in quarts.

I haven't checked in a week or so... but they didn't have it then. Once they start carrying it I'll probably buy a few containers of it. Thanks for the heads up Tom.

Checked our new WM last week. They did not have any 5w-40 T&SUV oil on shelf (had some stupid 5w-20 oil in the T&SUV slot). Got the clerk to search. We finally found this huge case of oil on shelf in back room. Four 5qt jugs in it. Price per jug:$18.88 ($3.78 per quart). I bought the whole case. Hope they get another case in soon.

I hope you guys are not operating under the assumption that the "Truck and SUV" oil is the same as Delvac 1. Delvac 1 is formulated for diesels with added detergents for soot dispersal. The T/SUV is formulated for gas engines and most likely a microscopic if any difference between it and any other Mobil synthetic oil that is formulated for gas engines. Almost all oils developed for gas engines will have a C rating, but it will be an aged C rating and does not have the added detergents that a diesel really needs.

To know for sure look at the Mobil Delvac or Shell Rotella T container for the highest C rating which I THINK is C J4. If the T/SUV oil does not have that C rating it is not what's best for your diesel.

The Truck/SUV, high mileage, etc are simply slight variations or maybe just a different weight of the companies standard oils, but packaged to create a market. Labeling oil in such a way, makes it easy for the average person to choose an oil. They think wow I have a truck, or I have an SUV, this is what I'm supposed to use. From a marketing standpoint, it's actually quite brilliant.

For your diesel, make sure you select an oil with the LATEST C (compression ignited) certification.

Have a great day,

I had asked that exact same question a while ago here whether the Mobil-1 T&SUV oil was the same as Delvac-1 and I had a number of responses that said it was. There was even a link to the Tech Specs for each which were identical. You may be right about the additive package but wouldn't that show up in the specifications?

Larry, your information about Truck and SUV oil is incorrect. The specs for it are here.

In looking over that site, Rick, it appears that the Truck and SUV oil would be the only real candidate for a diesel engine. None of the other oils have a CI rating. Thanks for the link.

Larry, same stuff (re-packaged), that's why I posted it.

Mobils website on T&SUV:

http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXENPVLMOMobil_1_Truck_SUV_5W-40.asp

Quote:
"Mobil 1 Truck and SUV further meets the diesel engine requirements of Cummins, Powerstoke, Duramax and Navistar – for bigger, heavier duty truck applications, such as delivery vans and utility fleets."
If you claim it's NOT Delvac 1, at least THEY (the maker) claims it's diesel rated, so it really doesn't matter, it's a diesel rated oil and at 5w40, works great here in the winter.

I talked to Mobil itself about Mobil1 Truck/SUV vs Delvac1 and they said "Either way you go, you are fine. Same stuff, different bottle. Whatever is on sale."

Come to find out they are getting the prices very similiar in M1 15w50 and Delvac if you can find the new 5qt bottle. I haven't seen it yet but Tom started another thread which mentions it.

Wally*World here in Ft. Funk has the containers. I bought 1 of the jugs and 3 quarts since my SDL doesn't have an oil cooler anymore it only take 8 rather than 9.5.

Thanks
David

I don't believe the SDL was ever supposed to take 9.5 quarts. Originally, the spec was 8 quarts, which was later revised with the '90 or '91 TDM to 7.5 quarts.
