most of the premium name brands for diesels are good. most important thing is to change it on a regular basis.

I used regular Rotella most of the time. I switched to Rotella Synthetic on the last change. Seeing as how I now get a discount on CAT Synthetic DEO, I will be using it in the future. It's made for CAT by Mobil.

I have always used rotella with lucas. At 180000 miles no oil problems yet. I reguraly change my oil every 5000 miles with an added auxarlly oil filter. It might cost a little more to change oil with added filter but I think the added piece of mind is worth it.
