I use the same oil year round. Scaeffers 100% synthetic 15w-40, but some switch to a 5W-40 blend for winter in much coler climates.

Brad, try the Valvoline Extreme Premium Blue full synthetic 5w40..your truck will love it, its not cheap and can be found at NAPA.

The two best oils for the 6.0 powerstroke:

Valvoline Premium Blue Extreme 5w40 syn: NAPA ($17.99 gallon sale or $25 reg price)

Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5w40 syn: Walmart $21 gallon. Autozone $6.99 per quart

I personally believe these are by far the two best oils for powerstrokes. Just my opinion

And remember, use only Motorcraft oil and fuel filters

I just switched to the Valvoline Premium Blue synthetic 5w-40 and it definatly made my truck start easier. Also cruising down the highway it seems like its just a smoother running truck.(engine noise is quieter) I doubt I'll ever switch back to dino oil. Valvoline or Mobil 1 synthetic all the way here.
