Re: Advice on oil type sought

Delo or Rotella are probably at least in the US, the most common available diesel motor oils around. Both have the most common 15-40, along with 30 and 40 wt single.

I've been using delo for over 20 yrs on the different diesels I have had, with no major issues. I also know many with rotella doing the same.

As noted, stick with the C rated oils, with the 2nd letter being the higher letter as you can, as that will be the most recent oil type, IE a CG is better than a CF.
