We went to restock our oil supply today. A wholesale house informed us that Chevron has discontinued making the 100.  I found some at another location, but what will we be using in the future?  Don and Cary

Here's the website for the API.

http://eolcs.api.org/FindBrandByServiceCategory.asp?ServiceCategory=CF-2

You can pick your favorite oil and then search more to find out if it's what you would like to use.

By the way, Chevron Delo 100 has been rebranded as Texaco Ursa, Since Chevron and Texaco are the same company now.

I guess they don't want to have two competeing brands of the same thing.

I hope this helps

FWIW Texaco Ursa has been around almost as long as me.  Cheesy  I used it back in the 60's in Detroit's in boats and then it disappeared.  Found out later that it had been renamed Delo 100.  Now it's back to Ursa again! Shocked

When will the oil companies stop playing with the voices in my head?  Egads!  They're confused enough already and now Global Warming? Huh

I wonder if this will make it a little easier to find?

Just went to www.chevron.com and Delo 100 is definitely listed in 30,40,50 straight weights and they mention the oil to be used in any 2 stroke Detroit engine including the big 149 series.  I think a better way for your oil distributor to be saying it, is they (the oil distributor) is not carrying the Delo 100 anymore.  Chevron would be foolish to stop making the Delo 100 since there are 10's of thousands of 2 stroke Detroits still in commercial use, let alone our spector of use in our bus conversions.  Good Luck, TomC

O'Reilly's Auto parts stores now carry Chevron Delo 100 40wt.  To find it near you go to the O'Reilly website here.  In the Product Search box on the left side of the page enter the item number "100-40-1".  It will prompt you for your zipcode, enter it and then it will show the nearest O'Reilly's store that has it in stock.

I also got an email back from Chevron indicating that they are not discontinuing it and they provided a link to a Chevron website page for locating a distributor (probably not that useful for most of us, but I will post it for those who might have use for it):

Rotella is twice the oil delo ever was. I don't care if Standard Oil want my business or not. I don't like their product.

Great Link HighTechRedneck, it worked for me. I was surprised to find it in Abilene TX.

Thanks,
