Why Doesn’t Mobil 1 10W-30 Still Have the API CF Mark?
Your 10W-30 full synthetic had an CF classification and now it doesn't. I have been using it in my Kubota diesel. I hope it doesn't damage my engine. What gives?

API discontinued licensing engine oils against the API CF specification on December 30, 2010. Though Mobil 1™ 10W-30 motor oil still meets the performance requirements of the classification, with its discontinuation, we have chosen to remove the claim from our labels.
