FYI

As of Feb 15th they are replacing the diesel 5w30 and 5/40 with these.

They say that the 5/40 synthetic meets all warranty requirements of Dodge, GM and Ford.

I haven't seen it in the stores yet and no info on their website. Was able to verify this through an Exxon Mobil distributor

ExxonMobil Introduces New Mobil 1 Truck & SUV 5W-30 and Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40 for Light and Heavy Duty Trucks and Sport Utility Vehicles



New Synthetic Truck & SUV and Turbo Diesel Motor Oils Deliver Unsurpassed Protection for Gasoline and Diesel Engines

Significant growth of diesel-powered trucks and the continued popularity of gasoline-powered light trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) as "working" vehicles has created a need for engine-specific high-performance motor oils. Two new products from ExxonMobil, Mobil 1(R) Truck & SUV 5W-30 and Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40, are filling that need, and providing superior protection and extending the engine life for these hard-working trucks.
Mobil 1 Truck & SUV 5W-30 and Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40 replace Mobil 1 Truck and SUV 5W-40.
Mobil 1 Truck & SUV 5W-30 will be available nationwide beginning in mid-February, at leading automotive retailers and participating Exxon and Mobil service stations. Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40 will be available in April at the same locations.
The newly formulated Mobil 1 Truck & SUV 5W-30 contains extra anti-oxidant, allowing for greater protection against deposit formation in hard-working gasoline trucks, vans, SUVs and recreational vehicles. The new energy-conserving formulation meets the latest industry standards for gasoline engines.
With the popularity of diesel-powered light trucks continuing to grow, ExxonMobil engineered Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40 to help extend engine life in modern turbo-charged diesel engines, even those operating in severe conditions such as towing and hauling. This formula meets the latest industry standards, including CI-4 Plus, and exceeds the requirements for both light-duty and heavy-duty diesel equipment. Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck reduces low-temperature sludge build-up and high-temperature deposits through excellent thermal and oxidation stability. High temperatures pose little threat, as Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck maintains its viscosity and has enhanced oil film strength, helping to reduce engine scuffing and bore polishing. It also provides wear protection and reduced oil consumption with its shear stability.
"With trucks and SUVs accounting for over 50 percent of vehicles sold in the U.S. and with significant growth of diesel-powered pick-ups, we felt it was important to create separate oils for the different needs of these vehicles," said Brad Onofrio, automotive marketing manager - Americas Region, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties Company. "Mobil 1 Truck & SUV and Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck are high-performance motor oils that offer superior protection for hard-working gasoline and diesel engines."

I checked the local Wallmart to see if they had any 5W40 truck and SUV. The shelf has been empty the last 3 months or so. They had seven 5 quart jugs. I only had the heart to take 6!!!

Thanks for the info on Mobile 1 Turbo Diesel. I have 2006 3500 Lbz, with 3000 miles on it at this time. Read the info you posted on Mobil web site and have been reading the postings about synthetic oils on this site. Sound's to me like the Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel 5W-40 is a good product for our trucks. Does anyone know any reason it would not be better than 15-40 Rotella or Dello? The thing that concerns me is the 5W speck when Gm recomends 15W min. Mobil say's on there web site the 40W viscosity stays stable at high temps.
