For the short interval change: (3-5,000 miles) : Motorcraft or Rotella.
For the long interval change: (5,000+ miles) Amsoil or Mobil1 Syn.

I am running the AMSOIL, I love it, made cold weather starts SOOOO much better. And the best protection availible. I'm working on a 10,000 mile change. I will be posting my Blackstone Labs results at 5,000 miles and then at 10,000 miles.

I'm a big fan of Rotella 5-40. It's 19.00 a gallon, works great, starts smoother, makes the engine very happy. I would recommend no matter what going with a 5-40. I'm not an Amzoil guy at all, I recommend getting good mobil synth for the diffs, etc and rotella in the motor. Blackstone results are always great with a good TBN even after 5,000 miles.
