How much is it per gallon? Most of us are running rotella t6 5w40 or the rotella t5 10w30. I think the last change I did was like $14 a gallon for the t5, around $20 for the t6. Those are the best oils I have found for the 6.0. Never tried the Triton stuff. I know the royal purple caused my truck to have terrible stiction. But that was a 15w40.

Fauk RP and their prices / availability / claims

but I don't know that I would drop to the Conoco ??

Rotella T6 for me and if i find some Dele syn at a good price I would run that

but oil preferences are a dime a dozen so their is my 2 cents

only place i have seen that conoco oil is at jiffy lube lol.... think it is what i had them put in my fiancee jetta, at least the semi-synthetic version when i was to lazy to change it.

i know some of the motorcraft/Honda oils, like the 5w-20 are made by conoco(i think it was bobtheoilguy.com i was reading that on), just not sure what additive package they use on there house brand,


i have rotella t3 in mine lol, might switch to rotella t(triple) or t5 next change though
