Delvac Elite 15-40

Anyone used this oil it is a Mobil semi synthetic. I have about 10 gallons of the stuff, I used it in my 06 Freightliner. It is an oil for diesel engines. If I can use it in my KLR that would great, if I can't use it will just go to waste. I know some of you use diesel specific oils, just wondering if this was one that can be used as well.

Thanks,
Mark
