Rotella or Motocraft Synthetic Oil

Is the rotella t6 synthetic oil better than the motorcraft synthetic? What are the pros or cons. I have been running T6 in my truck for about 30k miles.

How about royal purple or Mobil 1? I used Royal Purple on my 5.4 Harley S/C ran good. I am a noob with diesel. Just installed a max minn and 5" exhaust. Now looking to start changing the oil and fuel filters

I dont think anyone is going to be able to tell you which one is better, most likely no one knows. Im sure you'd be fine with either. I use T6 myself.

PGreentSVT has a chart and knows about oil grades. Maybe see if he can give the chart?
