Run Rotella myself, but something new to consider.

Extended service intervals and focus on after treatment health, with no metallic additives.

From Chevron, " It all started over 15 years ago with a problem in search of a solution. A truck OEM asked Chevron if it would be possible to remove metallic content in oil additives, then reducing sulfated ash in the process. First, engineers at Chevron were perplexed, then the request became a challenge".

“That was quite a unique challenge for a formulator”, said Teri Crosby, global product manager – Chevron Oronite. “Typical API requirement for ashes in heavy duty engine is about 1%. We dropped that by 60%. This is not incremental.”

The Delo 600 ADF is formulated to 0.4% sulfated ash, which helps drastically reduce the rate of DPF clogging, to deliver extended DPF service life and industry redefining fuel economy retention, says the company. All of this would ultimately contributes to reducing customer operating costs.

Curious to see pricing and recommended oil change intervals.

You still should stick to the auto manufacturers recommend service interval regardless oil what an oil manufacturer says. Unless the big 3 get on board. If Cummings approves this oil I’d probably use it for the sake of the DPF.

Can't wait for it to appear at Costco.
Maybe that's why Costco's had the perpetual sale on Delo 400.

No matter what the cost, or mileage, Ram wants you to pour out the oil every six months, remember?

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

Sigh, true. Ever the town crier!

But my log book shows 2 changes a year, but i really stretch it to once every 10 months or so.

Now to get my receipts to jive up, that's the trick. I only put 4K a year on my truck mostly camping, so I have a very hard time with twice a year.

I have a few of those log books, too. They're handy for FCA vehicles.

So far I'm just under 11,000 miles on my early '17. It'll likely get its third oil change before winter sets in for real.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?
