I use DELO 400 (in the blug one gallon jugs from Costco) for the 617 diesels, and Amsoil 15W40 HD Synthetic for the 603 engines.
I think DELO has added something about synthetic to the 15W40 oil but I figured it was hype and not a full synthetic at that price. I am suspicious on every claim that manufacturers make these days. They are getting clever as all they want to do is SELL SELL SELL!

My friend the Mobil engineer verifies this.



Truck & SUV is no longer a Diesel oil, its basically the same as their regular Mobil1 g@sser oil. He also verifies this.

Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40 is what Truck & SUV used to be.
He also verifies this. This oil is approved for all diesel applications.

Answer one Question...What did MTU recomend ?

Find one of those New Tractor Tugs and ask the Engineer what he runs
(In the engines)

I'm Depressed,Disappointed and Disgusted with Mobil.
(WTF did you expect,They're an Oil Company,Stupid)

I guess I'll fall back to the title of this thread.

I don't own an MTU, so I don't know what one would call for. Call them.
