We bought a 1988 40 ft Bluebird Wanderlodge. It has a Detroit Diesel 2 stroke engine. We were told Delo 100 30 weight is the best oil for it. The mechanic who changed the oil for us used Delo 400 instead of Delo 100. Should we drain it & change it to the 100 30 weight we asked for? Will it harm anything if we run the 400 for a few thousand miles before we change it to Delo 100? Also when we drain the 400 out should we change the new oil filter also even if we don't drive it with the 400 oil he put in it? It has been idled since the oil change but not driven. Thx
