2006 and Rev-X?

yes i am aware this is probably a dumb question but i got a 2006 f250 and i'm running rotella 15w40 oil. im wanting to start adding rev-x to my truck but im seeing everyone whos running that is using like 5w40 synthetic. do i have to run that synthetic or can i still do rev-x using my current 15w40 with no problems?

thanks

You can use the 15w40. But the synthetic is the better option.

Run it in whatever oil you choose. Still does the same thing regardless. 6.0's just love synthetic oil more than any other diesel normally does IMHO. Has to do with the way the injection system operates.

Your likelihood of developing injector stiction is also much less with a synthetic than with Dino oil. A switch to T6 5w40 would be an improvement.

ok well I'm doing the rev-x for sure. still debating on switching oils. but I checked out the rev-x website and it showed a ton of bottles, labels, sizes and amounts. Rev-X is all the same correct? and also how much would I need to purchase?

I believe the instructions for it is you use 8 oz. for the initial application and 4 oz. every oil change after that.
