Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super diesel engine oil success story


ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest integrated steel and mining company, operates a number of Caterpillar 793 trucks at its iron ore mine site in Mont-Wright, Quebec, all of which use Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super 15W-40 diesel engine oil. After 500 hours in use, each truck was taken off the job for routine service, including oil changes.

Because each truck being serviced was out of operation for 24 hours, the company approached the experts at Imperial Oil, an ExxonMobil subsidiary, for a lubricant solution capable of helping extend oil drain intervals and increase equipment availability.


After proper evaluation, the technical experts at Imperial Oil put together a program that consisted of extensive used oil analysis to monitor oil drain extensions to 500, 750, 1,000 and 1,100 hours of service.

The mine’s maintenance team has since elected to change oil and service trucks following consumption of approximately 95,000 liters of fuel, or between 750 and 850 hours of service.


After implementing used oil analysis, ArcelorMittal recognized the long-term benefits of using Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super 15W-40 heavy-duty diesel engine oil.

The company reports that Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super 15W-40 engine oil has helped extend oil drain intervals by more than 50%, increasing equipment availability and reducing overall maintenance costs. Together, these benefits have helped generate a company-estimated annual savings of US $350,000.

*This proof of performance is based on the experience of a single customer. Actual results can vary depending upon the type of equipment used and its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
