NAPA Synthetic Oil

Anybody ever use it? I noticed it less than half the price of regular synthetic oils.

Does it matter for a tractor motor?

From my research I have found that NAPA synthetic oil is just rebranded Valvoline synthetic, although with a slightly less stout adative package

Well I've been using the Valvoline full synthetic. But saw the price difference and started thinking, would it really make a difference. I change the oil every 3k anyway.

valvoline makes many of the "house brand" and "no name brand" oils on the market.
alot, but not all, will have "ashland oils" somewhere on the label.

If it's a tractor motor, why not run Mobil 1 Delvac?

I would be very surprised if the additive package was any different at all.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I interested what the difference between this and the Mobil 1 turbo diesel truck blend is.

I used diesel oil in my 4.0 (Rotella T5)...

The people over at BITOG say the NAPA Synthetic is Ashland oil (Valvoline) and it's a pretty darn good oil.

Is Rotella SF rated? I would only use an engine oil in a gasoline engine if it includes that SF rating.

Here are the ratings for their 'T' blend. I'll try to find the T5 information here in a little while. For the record, I've been using T5 successfully for a couple years. The flat tappet 4.0 loves the higher ZDDP/stout add pack in the rotella. The added cleaning agents are a plus too.

I actually use T5 in my wifes 4cyl TJ, my 4.0 WJ, and my 5.9 J-10...

Anyway, the ratings are listed below:

API: CJ-4, CI-4 Plus, CI-4, CH-4, CG-4, CF-4, CF.
API: SM, SL, SJ, SH
ACEA: E9, E7
JASO DH-2, MA, MA2
Caterpillar: ECF-1A, ECF-2, ECF-3
Cummins: CES 20081
DDC: 93K218
Deutz: DQC III-10 LA
Mack: EO-O Premium Plus
Ford: WSS-M2C171-E
MAN: M3575
MB Approval: 228.31
MTU: Category 2.1
Renault Trucks: RLD-3
Volvo VDS-4

Edit: Here are the specifications for T5 10W-30:

API: CJ-4, SM
ACEA: E9, E7
Caterpillar: ECF-3, ECF-2
Cummins: CES 20081
DDC : 93K218
Ford : WSS-M2C171-E
JASO: DH-2
Mack: EO-O Premium Plus
MAN: M 3575
MB Approval: 228.31
MTU: Cat 2.1
Volvo: VDS-4

Information can be found at: http://www.epc.shell.com/

Yeah, it's oil for diesel vehicles and rather expensive (55-gallon drum is ~$1,700). I used to have two turbo diesel vehicles, a Chevy Duramax w/Allison and a VW TDi Golf, and ran Mobil 1 Delvac. I used to have to get it at a truck stop, oh the looks I'd get in the little VW...
