Bought it at the dealer's, New Star Oil Trading at Balakong, Tmn. Industri Selesa Jaya, Jalan 5/5, No. 16. Call them at 89622128, 89610128, 019-3362959, 012-2271678. Cheaper ma n not much different spec-wise from Delo, RX is 10W/40, Delo is 15W/40.


Hi johnckl,

Could you let us know the specs for both of these oils, the Castrol RX 10W/40 and Caltex Delo 15W/40 ?

I am curious to know what is the API specs for these oils, both the diesel "C" and petro "s" ratings.

Thank you.

This is the specs for Caltex Delo 40 multigrade 15W-40 that I found from the Chevron website.

Chevron Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 meets:
• API Service Categories CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, CH-4,
CG-4, CF-41, CF, CE1, CD1, SL, SJ, SH1, SG1
• ACEA European Service Categories E7, E2
• JASO Asian Service Categories DH-1
• Global Service Categories DHD-1
• major diesel engine manufacturers’
requirements
Caterpillar J.I. Case
Cummins John Deere
DAF Komatsu
DaimlerChrysler Kubota
Detroit Diesel Mack
Deutz MAN
Fiat / Allis Mercedes
Ford Mitsubishi
GMC / GM MTU
Hino Navistar
International Nissan
Isuzu Renault
Iveco Scania Volvo

CI-4 PLUS/SL. For a HDEO, IMO, think it is quite good unless someone can produce better specs for products that are widely found all over Malaysia,

API CF only, no S? rating, so can't be used by petrol engines... too bad.

So far been using it for ~ 60k kms w/ it before I sold the car off, the engine rev is smooth. Even u rev up to ~ 6.5k rpm repeat for about 25 min w/ engine on load the oil temp also quite stable @ ~110degC.

As for N/A car & bike I am not sure about it, iI do see some BMW's bike also use mineral oil. I also hv friend who try on a 1.8t engine his feed back is not that good.

BTW, where can I get this 18L peal in Selangor area??
