Oil??

After deleting did you change the type of oil you use? Or did you keep the same? If you changed what did you change to.

I'd think, with no more regen, you could go to an expensive oil and make it last much longer.

Oil??

That's what I'm thinking too! Like a 15w40?

15W40? That's roughly stock. Well, I guess 10W30 is, but 15W40 is cheap. I mean 5W40 synthetic

I run Scheaffer's 9000 5W-40.

Rotella T6 5W-40 is also a great oil.

I wouldn't run Dino 15w-40 in my truck. Compromise elsewhere...

Oil??

Changed everything out today and I was amazed at how dirty that oil was. I just deleted everything so that should be night and day different next time.
