    We use Mobil Delvac. I believe Mobil makes Cat oil.

    I suggest D-A Lubricants, I have used it for 40 years with NO problems and very completive pricing.

    I think Cat got out of the oil business a few years ago. Really didn't make sense to me that they ever got into it in the first place.

    Da is aboug 2 minutes away from our shop. I get some stuff from them. Looks like most people are not using cat oil.

    Cat did not get out of the oil business. They certainly have a partnership with Mobil. DA is decent from what I've seen
