I heard about a possible heavy duty engine oil recall earlier this morning. Supposedly covering Cummins and Detroit.

Anybody know anything?

I heard and read in the trade papers that it has something to do with the "seasonal blend". I'm wondering if the manufacturers are doing something with the oil similar to our diesel, "Summer Blend" or "Winter Blend".

I found out that so far it is only Mobil, not sure on the other brands yet.

Here's a picture of the OEM manufacturers' recommended replacement:

Oil, is oil, is oil, only the name changes on the bottle lol Diesels require the 10-40 for low sulfur content. BUT to top off if you're stuck, anything will do for a few quarts, without ill effects. I even ran Delo 10-40 in my high perf. VW engines, sometimes, 20-50 depending how hard I drove em. Why build all that power to crawl hahaha

New autos are way more critical to use the recommended viscosity 0-20 etc because of the closer tolerance inside. I never believed in those oil additives like slick-50 etc, BUT the best 1 to use I have found thru the years is Lucas !! 1 quart per oil change (auto's)

The gasoline additive by Lucas says 1 small bottle for 20 gallons NOT! it's too diluted, always told people, and customers run your gas tank to a 1/4 or less, add a bottle, drive it using up the gas then refill , it works best cleaning internals. After all, they are out to sell more product, so using it in 20+ gallons ain't gunna do much good= buy more lol....

Anyways, I'm sure a lot of you's knew this stuff already........Stay safe out there Guys n Gals, no load is worth crashing for
