There already has been several heated debates on Fred's TDIclub about this
new oil.  Some say it's Delvac-1, some say it's not.  I've not been able to
compare the specs of each oil myself, but others that claim to have, have
said both oils are virtually the same.

The main thing I'd want to know is, is this new oil a Group 4 oil like
Delvac-1, or a cheaper Group 3 knock-off.  If a gallon of the new Truck &
SUV is cheaper than D1, I bet it's Group 3.

How much for a gallon of D1 and a gallon of Truck & SUV in your area?

I was walking around the local FLAPS and noticed this new Mobil 1
marked for Truck and SUV.   It's 5W-40 and the label and website gives
a rating of:

Meets and exceeds the most stringent U.S., European and Japanese
industry and engine-builder specifications and approvals, including:

- API SL/SJ for gasoline engines.
- API CI-4/CH-4/CG-4/CF-4/CF for diesel engines.
Meets diesel engine requirements of Cummins, Powerstroke, Duramax and
Navistar where API CI-4 is required.

Wally world had it in stock also for the same price as gasser Mobil 1.

Now, call me skeptical, but I get the feeling this is no different
than all the other Mobil 1 grades.

Any way, I guess this stuff is equivalent to the Delvac 1 at a cheaper
price and locally accessible.
