I've been using Rotella Syn 5W40 for about 3 years now because of the availability where I live.

I would really like to try Mobil 1 or Valvoline Synthetic if they offered it locally because I feel like they might be superior. That being said, I've been very happy with my truck's performance while using Rotella Syn and the oil analysis have come back very good.
