Oil for your trucks

Well here is my first post, joined because of the purchase of my 07 F350 and wanted to be in with the people who have experienced the life of their powerstrokes!!

I just came up to my first oil change on my new 07 F350, and was wondering what weight and types of oil is recommended. I have already changed it with Mobil 1 10w30 synthetic. I would like to stay with the synthetic, but would like to be running the 15w40 like the manual suggests. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all
Joe

order some amsoil 15w40 and an EaO filter. You can double your service intervals or more depending on your driving habits.
check AMSOIL Corporate - Source of the World's Best Synthetic Lubricants - Motor Oil and Filters

they say you can get 25k miles out of their synthetic and their oil, does anyone go that long without changing their oil? On my last truck i was very religious with synthetic oil avery 3k miles. Just curious, i plan on having this truck a while and definately want to make it last

To know for sure you can use an oil analysis place like Blackstone Laboratories. After 5000 miles you can sent out your sample and they will be able to tell you if you can go longer intervals or not. Its a good thing reguardless if you go extended drains or not as it will tell you what is going on inside your engine.

if you used regular mobil 1 its for gas engines not diesels,get a diesel oil that meets the required specs and change it again.

I was juste noticing that as well. If it is not for diesels, swap it out once more and get some Delo, or Rotella, or something like that that is made for these. They have extra additives that help lube and clean the motor. Alot of them are 15w40s. Good luck.
