? on switching from standard 15-40 to Rotella T6

I am thinking of switching over to Syn. T6 5-40 on my next/first oil change in my 2000 7.3. I use T6 in my wifes Jeep CRD and am happy with it's perfomance(oil).

For those of you who have converted to a syntheitc from dino, is there anything I need to be careful of regarding the residual leftover dino oil left in the system and the synthetic not blending after the change?


Thanks.

Mix it up!
I also use t6 in my CRD! Good stuff but too much coin to run in the 73.
I change the truck every 3-4k and the crd every 6,250 or what ever the stupid computer interval is.
I love the 33mpg of the jeep crd. I want another!

T6 is heavily hydrocracked synthetic...meaning it has dino oil base stocks, it will blend with any dino oil just fine.

It is good stuff, great value for a synthetic...still a bit too rich for my blood but very good.
