CJ4 'Low Emissions' Oil

I was at my local Fred Meyer (kind of a sell-everything store in the pacific northwest) and they had Chevron Delo400 marked for clearance. Apparantely they are replacing all CI4 oil with the new CJ4 oil (renamed 'Delo400LE').

Chevron pdf is here: http://www.delobike.com/Chev%20CJ4%20Q_A.pdf

Now I'm not only concerned about low sulfur fuel, but also low sulfur oil. I'm certainly no expert on either... looking for some opinions from those who are... should I be concerned?

It looks like Chevron will continue to produce both the CI4 and CJ4 oils... should I be avoiding the CJ4 formula? (I did buy all I could of the CI4 at the ~$5/gallon clearance price ;-).

BTW, For those of you who perform engine oil analysis... you'll need to reset your baseline when (er... if?) you convert to CJ4 specification.

the newest API diesel truck oils are starting to look more like those required by Euro diesel autos. Lowered-SAPS -> to protect and preserve more sensitive emissions components.
