the reason why I chose the 3000 series 5 w 30 is because it is for 2007 and older diesel engines is the something that you know that i don't or is this just the oil you run?

Depends on how you use your truck and where you live. 5w30 is a great winter oil if you live where it is cold. If you live where it gets real hot in the summer and you tow I would run the 5w40 for the summer. I m running the 5w30 currently but am getting ready to switch it to 5w40 for the summer.

I notice that link you posted includes a "zo number" which means DAVE MANN gets paid for ANY subsequent orders made by ANYONE who clicked that link.
He'll surely get credit (as the owner of that ZO) for any resulting sales, since a permanent cookie is saved to everyones computer who uses the link you posted. Unless they manually clear their internet cache, that ZO number gets paid.

I like Amsoil, but I REALLY DISLIKE the way it is marketed. Especially when promotional links are posted where someone makes money from those individuals who subsequently buy Amsoil products. It encourages people to post links everywhere and Amsoil is spammed all over the internet.

If I were an Amsoil dealer I would immediately disclose that fact upon ANY mention of an Amsoil product.
Just curious if you are associated with them at all?

Dave has probably got at least a dozen different websites and he promotes it all over the internet. I just think it is quite excessive the way their whole operation works.
It's also degrading to others that he claims he's the ONLY degreed engineer selling Amsoil. He holds a degree in mechanical engineering. Maybe he is unaware he's not the only Amsoil dealer who has access to the internet.

I would run AME. Or if you want good oil that is cheap, DELO LE 15w40.
10-12 a gallon and it protects incredibly well for a petroleum oil.

WOW....Mobil 1 runs $24 and Rot T6 runs $20. Hope it lives up to their hype. I tried Amzoil finding it just didn't run my truck like I wanted. Motor/injectors were just too loud when compared to Mobil 1 or Valvoline Extreme Blue.
