I like delo better than the rest. Maybe its because it is cheaper..usually.
also it seems to come out less black than rotella..i know that doesnt really mean much, but it makes me feel better..

It's great. Mainly because it's sold so cheap at Costco.

Run Delo here too. Change every 10,000 miles and pulling 15000# 2500 miles per week. Have 2 friends who run it too. One is a diesel mechanic at an ambulance service and swears by it and the other is an OTR 18 wheeler driver and goes 30,000 between changes.

Any Chevron Product is great. Rotella is good too. Stay away from Penzoil. Find what works good for you.

Used Delo 400 for ten years in my Cummins. Now I am trying to decide between the Delo and Delvac.

Just switched my whole fleet to Delo synthetic. I get it bulk but was cheaper than Rotella. See how it holds up

I change at 5k and delo has been good to me. When I bought the truck it had the tick* and I switched to delo because I wasnt sure what was in there before. The tick went away for about 10k miles and now it's back slightly! So annoying!
