Mobil Delvac 1300 super 15w 40...?

Is this a good oil to run in a 6.0 or is it problematic or anything. Let me know what you guys think about it and if you personally have any experience with it.
Thanks guys.

Ok, thanks. The reason I'm asking is because a friend of is a CAT dealer and gave me a good little bit of this oil and I was wanting to hear alittle bit about it before I use it.

What are you running, Don? My truck's due for an oil change, while it's in the shop.

On a side note: The AE santa bought me should have shipped out Monday.

Sweet! That's what I run year-round, since it doesn't really get cold enough for a different weight.

Id use it...it EXCEEDs all the API specs required by the mfg...
its good oil, i would recommend that you sample it & test it.

sample it and test it to become comfortable w/ it & to make sure
you dont have any other issues (leaking injectors or coolant in the
oil). w/ the FREE oil youll be WAY WAY ahead of the game and youll
easily be able to justify the cost of sampling.

This might be a dumb question, but how do you go about testing it?
