I run Amsoil 5w-40. I have used Rotella T6 5-w40 also. My truck likes the Amsoil more than Rotella. Shortly after I bought the truck it developed a stiction issue, I was running the Rotella and I used Rev-X in 2 changes. Within 10 min the Rev-X cleared the stiction up, it idled smoother, everything with the motor was smoother.. When I switched to Amsoil I quit using Rev-X because the consensus seems to be that you don't need it with Amsoil. Been running Amsoil for about 5K and no problems.

Amsoil. The guys that fixed my head gasket "issue" the other day said the inside of my motor looked new.
Lots of opinions but take it for what it's worth. I'm about 125K and my motor hard core and still looks new off of it. I'll stick with it.
