I bought like 6 oil filters (motorcraft) from FleetFilter.com and saved a ton of money doing that. I also bought the gallon jugs (did the math, it was cheaper then buying the 5 gallon buckets).

It costs me around 50 bucks I guess to do it myself and about 15 minutes of my time.

A few of my instructors at Wyotech said that engines that had Rotella T ran in them reduced bearing life. One of my instructors that worked for detroit diesel said they did testing on different oil companys and with Rotella T they had were changing the main bearings out a 300,000 miles compaired to the average 500,000 miles. I just bought my powerstroke and all I'm going to run in it is Amsoil.

Well if you want to spend a little bit of money I would run Amsoil. If you want to go cheap it cost about $40-$50 for Motorcraft oil and a filter from advanced auto parts or walmart.
