Just vote for the brand of synthetics. If you dont like syn then just mark standard

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.

Just switched to Amsoil AME 15w40 synthetic....my 6.0 has been running like a champ and soo smooth. Next I'll try the Amsoil 5w30 HDD. Previously I used the Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5w40, good stuff.

My vote goes to Amsoil # 1 and Mobil 1 # 2

Amsoil 5w-40, truck is quieter and when I shut it down the turbo spins for an additional 20 seconds.
Never done that with any other oil
