I decided on Mobil's Delvac 1 for use in my tractor after researching the various synthetic and non-synthetic oils available for diesel engines. Mobil's website has a wealth of information about the product, how it compares to conventional motor oil, etc.. Suggest visiting http://www.mobil.com/business/cvl/onhighway/product_services/delvac1/d_faqs2.html Good luck Smile)

Haven't used or intend to use the Mobil delvac product, but highly recommenda TRUE synthetic lube. I personnally use AMSOIL, of which IMHO is the best of the best, cost reflective of course. I haven't taken delivery of my JD4100 yet,but I use only synthetics in all my equipment. My little 4 banger car has 181K hard miles on theOdometer, and still runs like new. My mechanic told me I was wasting my money until he took off the valve cover to adjust all 16 valves. Appearantly, Honda recommendsvalve adjustments on the older (90') 16v heads every 30k. I had it done at 110kfor the first time. He said the valves are in better condition than cars with 30-40k milesusing Petroleum products. He took pictures of the valves to show his buddys, no one believed him. He had also never seen an (+100K Mile)engine without even a speck of sludge ANYWHERE Guess who now uses Synthetics. Furthermore, Anyone who states that synthetics are a waste or not proven to be better, should never fly in a jetor go to a NHRA,NASCAR, or any professional race!

A co-worker and his brother both have Honda's. They both use regular oil of no particular brand. One Honda has 250,000+ miles and the other has 280,000 miles. Neither engine has ever been opened. You are wasting your money with synthetics. The brand and model of the engine has more to do with how long it lasts than the type of oil. The rest of the parts on these cars are wearing and rusting out, so what would you gain if the engine lasted even longer? With 280,000 miles of oil changes just think how much extra money would be spent on synthetics. Synthetics may be better but who needs it?
