Mobil 1's 15W50 has been "re-formulated" for the USA. It ain't what it used to be.

Maybe not. But how do you know it isn't better?

I prefer 5w-40 syn especially made for diesels.

Maybe you should look somewhere besides Wally World. In a Love's truck stop, I found Mobil Delvac (CH-4 rated) for $12+change.

Actually, this Love's was in Hillsboro, TX but I have found other places, in the past, just as competitive. (and a lot less draining on the local economy)

Are you talking about Mobil Delvac (dino) or Mobil Delvac 1 (synthetic)? The synthetic is normally about $28.

Sounds like Mobil Delvac 1300 which costs about $8 a gallon at Autozone. You overpaid.

Delvac 1 has a list price of about $27 a gallon.
