Damn. I just don't understand why people use that oil. Cost way too much and if you change it every 5k miles you might as well use 15W-40 oil.

But I use Rotella 15w-40 oil and motorcraft filter. It cost me about 60 bucks to do my change.

I've been running the Rotella T6 full synthetic for a while now. However, I'm tired of spending so much on oil changes. Next change I am running the regular Motorcraft 15w/40, mainly because it summer and there won't be any cold starts for a while. I often take UOA's, so I'll monitor how the engine likes the regular oil.

Traded.. 03 6.0 PSD For.. Black F250 2008 SD LARIAT 6.4 PSD 4x4, Aries Bull Bar, Westin chrome running bars, Dura Liner, B&W Gooseneck hitch, Recon smoked taillights, Icon 4.5" lift, 35" Toyo M/T, etc... Running Spartan Tunes AFE PG 7, Flo Pro 4" DP Back, thanks to Cobb's Diesel. It has been great so far.
