#2 is road diesel you find at most pumps so no that is fine to use. You can use rotella oil as long as it meets ford specs for your engine.

#1 is thinner then number two for cold weather. Usually I think winter blend is a 50/50 mix of #1 and #2. #1 doesn't lubricate as well as number 2 I hardly see #1 where Im at.
