    My personal experience with Shell & Caltex Oils on Diesel Engines

    Shell Hilux Hx-7 / Ultra 10w40 - Currently 5w30
    A More Engine Responsive Ride - Fast Pick & Feels like driving super enhanced engine! Performance drastically improved!
    Super Fuel economy! Good in winters too. Excellent Flow.

    Caltex Delo Gold - 15w40
    Feels Same like common mineral OIL, only little BOOST/help on up-hills & areas where heavily needed. Engine response on HARD acceleration only, not so smooth & swifty. Burns Less smoke. Good Fuel economy.
    This oil is Not good in winters. Gets thick, even at 15 Degree centigrade & needs some warmup time to get into position of fast flow.
    Best temperature to RUN this OIL is 25-30 Degree centigrade OR above.

    Total Score: 10/10

    Shell Hx-7 / Ultra 10w40/5w30 = 10 / 10

    Caltex Delo Gold 15w40 = 5 / 10

    SHELL WINS !!

    Source ?
    Bro, i aint no dealer, distributor OR any wholesaler/retailer OR Lab. guy.
    im just a 4x4 enthusiast, experience of 15 years only.

    But Bro, i ain't no chitter chatter & internet googling around from sources / graphs / pedia's & other forums info.
    & copying pasting them here

    Its' Simple: I gain experience personally, TESTED burning my time & money & then i'm able to tell my folks about it. Real & Straight cut!

    I've experienced Caltex Delo Gold coking up very FAST, specially in Turbo charged diesel vehicles with Blow by PCVs'.
    The REAL FACT & DEAL IS that on continuous driving over high speed upto 7-8 hours, with DELO Gold you can damage your Turbo + burn a lot of OIL, leading to engine damage at its level best. OIL looses its work & becomes like water, in simple words: Its Gone with the wind! So finally, Delo GOLD is totally SH&***T !

    uptill now, i have tested Caltex Delo Gold & Shell Helix Hx 7 only.
    I compared these 2 companies only because they are easily & readily available in originality from their respective pump stations, other retailers/shops i don't trust them.
    There are lots of other good OIL brands too, but don't know their original source of packaging & distribution etc.

    Drive safe!

    I havent used Caltex Delo
    but using the shell ultra(Gray pack not blue) for past 2 and half year. Recently changed to Zic XQ 5W-40. Both shell and zic brand can be used
    for high performance light diesel engines. Performance wise they were same but with shell I found engine sound to be smoother than Zic.

    Everyone has his own experience but to simply reject a product on that basis is beyond apprehension.
    These products by MNC's are here after years of R&D.
    About my experience
    Yes I am using Delo Gold & satisfied with it.
    About this particular brand getting tubo damage, engine damage, oil loss & become water is absurd.
    I have driven almost non-stop from Skardu to Besham & then from Abottabad to Karachi & had no issue.
    Do some serious off-roading also
    The oil behaved like a baby like virgin
    Best of luck Bro with Brands of your choice

    Brother what ride u got?
    Did u tripped thru out with A/C on ?
    What was ur maximum speed during the trip?
    How much MPG u were gettin' ? - the real deal.

    I know what ur saying & understand it very well.
    I can even go thru out Pakistan with the most disgusting low quality oil. no problem.

    But the thing is when it comes to OIL, means maximum performance out of ur ride.

    Delo Gold is the best, I have been using it for at-least 7 years in my Nissan Sunny 1997 CD20!
    Car went to karachi with full time AC on, fully loaded & gave 18km/ltr avg ! No issue in pick, or speed!
    Like @baigaqeel said The oil behaved like a baby like virgin

    Now i am using it in my Pajero Gen 2 1991 SWB NH 4D56 TDi, for at least 5 months, no issues till now
    Give average of 9km/ltr in local with great pick, boost & speed

    Have done hard core off-roadings
    Have gone on motorway with full time AC on , no issues there too!

    So i thnk Caltex is best! Shell is s**t even there diesel is s**t, they have too much chemicals & gas in their products, i always had bad experience with shell even if i had to refill my diesel tank from their pump.

    @Demonoid Thanks for seconding me.
    I always say Don't reject a product or impose on others simply by your like or dislike.
