Paul, people are going to use what ever they think is best it just PO me that some think Delo 100 is the only oil it is all about marketing with Chevron and the 100 the stuff was never around till 149 series hit the market .
I won't be making any more comments about oil here

good luck

I know how you feel. You set me straight and my ole 8v71 thanks you!

As PP says, WM oil is in TWO gallon jugs so the price is pretty good.

John, I never found it 40W here in states but saw it at WM  in Canada if I could find it in 40 or 50W it would not be a problem for me

I just changed the oil in my beast, used the Walmart straight SAE 40 CF2 oil, bought two five gallon buckets at $39.95 each.  Thought it was a heck of a deal.

John, I spoke with the service manager in their lube department. Turns out, he orders parts for vehicles they work on and restocks the auto department. He was very obliging when I told him I wanted the D100 and not the D400 they had on the shelf. In fact, he chuckled and said, "Huh, you must have an old Detroit." I think it helps to live in a logging community where there are still plenty of old log trucks running 2 strokes. I didn't have the heart to tell him it was for a bus. Will
