Which Oil?

I am looking at going with Amsoil in my 07 6.0 PSD. I do not know which one would be best. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was looking at the series 3000, 5W/30, just was unsure of that or the 15W/40. If you can send a price that would be great.

The 15w40 is for the diesel marine and from what ive been told its not needed unless you are in extreme temperatures. I run the amsoil 15w40 3000 series

What does the Amsoil cost? I run RotellaT 5w40 synthetic. I just picked some up today for $17.99 a gallon. It's 22 at Walmart and 21 something at Advance, but I found 1 gallon at Autozone for $17.99 and got Advance to price match the rest at $17.99. Walmart will price match too.

I also noticed they have Mobil1 turbo diesel formula now for $25 a gallon. I thought about trying it, but nobody had more than a gallon in stock, and I didn't feel like going all over hell just to get oil.

KDUB7, lone Ranger here in Oz....

JUST DON'T SWITCH TO A FULL SYNTHETIC UNTIL ABOUT 20,000 MILES.!!!!

No one has said it, so I thought I would jump in... I have an 07 King Ranch with only 15,000 kms, sort of 11,000 miles, WAAAAY TO EARLY to switch to AMSOIL... It is a thing like TOO MUCH super low wear lubrication, and your rings will not seat in properly. I would hold off til even longer than 20,000 miles. !!! And frequent oil changes for dilution of your oil, is better than the best synthetic oil and longer oil change intervals... I am sure some new techno will disagree, but trust me it is true..

I may NEVER go to expensive synthetics in the engine, just more often good oil changes.. Regards from Australia....
