I have been reading up on engine oil for diesels.

It seems to be as Art has been saying for a long time, that not all oils are designed to stand up to the 100 percent power settings we use most of the time with our CUT's.

So I settled on John Deere's Plus 50 0w-40 full synthetic because it is advertised to go the distance with high power settings.

BUT.... wouldn't you know it? There isn't a tractor dealer within 200 miles that stocks the stuff. So the idea came to me in the middle of the night that Deere is a much bigger company than ag/compact tractors.

So, I called the local Deere construction equipment company and they have Plus 50 on the shelf ready to go.

And here is the good part.... It is $12.20 a Gallon.

That is cheaper that Shell Rotella Synthetic at Wally World!

I am on my way..........

At that price. Fill her up. Do you think it is a full synthetic like Mobil or a hydrotreated oil like the Shell?

I guess I will need to check with the local dealer.

Does Mobil has a diesel syn oil?

Their old Mobil One is not always full syn now. They offer it in two blends if not mistaken.

Well, it turns out that we a misunderstanding on the phone.

They quoted me a price on the Plus-50 15w-40 which is not a full synthetic.

I will keep you posted on the actual price of the 0w-40 Synthetic when the special order they placed comes in.

Eric.... I am not sure where the base material comes from. Some folks on the internet believe it is made by Chevron to Deere specs.

KThompson.... Mobil 1 is rated for diesel use and Mobil also has a specific diesel synthetic called Delvac 1.

But the question at hand is if either of the above oils are rated for 90 percent+ continuous engine output.

It is a hydrogenated oil like Shell, Pensoil, Quaker or PetroCanada. Lucas is know for additives not their oil per say. They are not distilling their own base stocks just blending oils.

I think JD did a good job of showing you the differences. When the tractor owners manual is suggesting the oil change intervals it is for comparable oil to their designed oil not what you might find at every Wally World or TSC. When people come in ask about oil change intervals I often recommend increased frequency do to the grades of oil they choose to use.

Mark, I have been using John Deere 15W-40 Plus 50 for about 4 years in most everything I own. It is made by Chevron for Deere. Buy it in the 55 gallon drum and you can save even more on the price.
