mobil 1 15w40 synthetic?

I know they MAKE a diesel specific synthetic, but the local store has the 5qt jugs on sale for $14.99 each. Im only assuming they ordered or were shipped the wrong weights, as ive never seen it sold this way before. Isnt there a special symbol it needs to have to run on a diesel? what other Non-diesel motors would use 15w40 anyway?

That's not bad --- I paid about that for 1 gallon jugs of Rotella T Synthetic 5W40 at Wally World. As long as the jug says either CI+4 or CJ compliant, it should be OK for your engine. Where did you find it (Mobile 1 15W40 Synthetic)? Heck, instead of 3 1/2 jugs, I could get by with 3 jugs and still have a quart left in the 3rd.

The only 15W40 Oils for diesels that I've seen at wally world is either Rotella T or Dello 400. The only 5W40 Synthetic's I've seen is Rotella T Synthetic or Mobil1, but I've never looked that close at the Mobil 1 jugs as they are not in with the other diesel motor oils (it is in with the passenger car oil). Ford says 15W40, but in the same breath, the owners manual says that "CI Plus 4" or the the newer "CJ" rated diesel oil is acceptable.
