The million mile oil

Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super 15W-40 is known the world over as ‘The Million Mile Oil’ – thanks to a relentless commitment to research and development*. The program includes millions of miles in highway fleets, along with non-stop laboratory work, testing lubricants in engines from every major manufacturer. Although original equipment makers may handle emission control in different ways, reformulated Mobil Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 has proven itself throughout extensive proprietary and industry engine tests and on-highway testing covering millions of kilometers.

Volvo Engine Exceeds Million-Mile Benchmark Using Mobil Delvac

In nearly seven years of operation, South Holland, Ill.-based Eagle Express Lines racked up more than 1 million miles on one of its trucks equipped with a Volvo D12A model engine. Displayed at the Volvo Trucks North America, Inc., booth during this year’s Mid-America Truck Show in Louisville, Ky., the engine amazed those who saw it because of its excellent condition and minimal signs of wear.

A big contributing factor to the engine’s durability and cleanliness, even after 1 million miles, was Mobil Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 high-performance heavy-duty diesel engine oil. Recommended for use in virtually all on- and off-highway applications, Mobil Delvac was the only oil ever used in the Eagle Express “Million Mile” engine. Along with meeting or exceeding all major industry OEM specifications, Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super is known by fleet managers and owner-operators for delivering exceptional resistance to viscosity breakdown and outstanding wear protection and keeping engines clean from soot and sludge.
