Which oil is best for 6.4l

Hello, I was wondering which of these three oils would be best for my truck. Delco, castrol gtx or Mobil delvac. I'm done with the dealership or other oil change place. My dealership always messes something up. And it's just an oil change. These three oils are on sale at local auto part store. I ran rotella in my 7.3 and had it till 240k. I have had dealership do oil since I bought it. Thanks for the help. Chris

There's a thousand threads on this subject and you'll get alot of opinions. Just search "oil" in the search bar. Personally I run rotella t6 and send in oil samples to Blackstone and currently going 12,000 miles per oil change.

I run Rotella T6 every oil change. And do a Blackstone test every time as well.

Personally I don't use synthetics for my engine oil cause I don't have them in my engine long enough to benefit from synthetic. I drop my oil every 3500 miles, so I use Delo 400 15w-40, it's a high detergent oil and it cleans up your block real good, and hasn't failed me yet. But to each there own

I've been running Valvoline Premium Blue full synthetic 5W-40. Been using it since my 06 F250.

I run mobil 1 0/40 year round synthetic and drop it every 3500
Miles. I get it for free otherwise I'd run it much longer.

Same here, that's why I stand behind Chevron Delo 400 15w-40, it's great oil don't get me wrong, but getting it at no cost makes it that much better What's 15 quarts from 15 55 gallon drums??
