Question Opinions please!

I know there is a fierce debate on what oil to use, and I dont want this to get to that. I simply want to hear from those who have used these and get their opinion. did you like it? why or why NOT?

Price wise im leaning towards Mobil Delvac, AND ive talked to alot of people who swear by it. Id like to try the lucas, and want to know more about the valvoline & castrol.

If you use the lucas in a PSD make sure it is the FULL synthetic or it WILL cause injector damage

Or Amsoil.

Or Schaeffer.


For the record, I use nothing but Rotella 15w-40. I had over 300k in my last diesel. My current diesel will never make 300k, but that's because I'm trying to blow this one up so I can drop a new one in.
