For the price Rotella T-5 (synthetic blend, unless you are using 0w-30 or 0w-40), is a nice compromise. There are some that also like Rotella t-6 for a full synthetic, it only comes in 5w-40. Not many say they use Mobil 1 TDT (turbo diesel truck) but it is a good oil but a few dollars more a gallon.
Amsoil is the best out there but is the most expensive.
The most important is thing is to make sure that your oil is properly rated.
Use a Ford or Racor oil filter ONLY, they are the patent holders!
Just put the synthetic in without adding any additives, there are no ill effects from switching between syn to dino and back.
