Mobil Delvac MX™ 15W-40 is an extra high performance diesel engine oil that provides excellent lubrication of today's diesel engines promoting extended engine life. As a result, this product meets or exceeds the specifications of virtually all major European and American engine manufacturers. This extra high performance has been proven in the field in a wide variety of industries, applications, and mixed fleets.
The advanced chemistry of this product provides outstanding performance in both modern, demanding low-emission diesel engines and older diesel engines operating on low or high sulphur fuel. Mobil Delvac MX 15W-40 combines a blend of high performance base stocks with a progressive additive system to provide superior control of oil thickening due to soot build-up and high temperatures as well as outstanding resistance to oxidation, corrosion, and high temperature deposits.
High output, low emission diesel engines significantly increase the demands on engine lubricants. Tighter engine designs reduce oil consumption, resulting in less fresh oil make-up to replenish depleted additives. Top piston fire rings are located higher on the piston bringing the oil film closer to the combustion chamber where higher temperatures increase thermal stress on the lubricant. Increased fuel injector pressure and retarded timing improve fuel burn efficiency, but also increase engine temperatures and increase soot loads. Mobil Delvac MX 15W-40 is formulated from high performance base oils and a superior balanced additive system to provide optimum engine performance in modern diesel and gasoline engines as well as older models.
