Haha it allows us to interact with people who over think things. Majority of threads, imo, are over thinkers. I'm too simple for all the debate. Don't get me started on "true towing capacity" lol - I just hook up and roll with it.

well said.....same here. I don't worry too much about my truck. I drive it like I stole it, almost daily LOL
@Strokininthe208 as far as Delo, my truck doesn't like it. Runs much better on the T6. Someday I might try different oils but for now that what she gets. Getting here ready to drive down to WA, I'll put on about 6500 miles in about two weeks. I'll change the oil when I get back. I just changed it last weekend.

I was able to find and stockpile 3 changes worth of my preferred brand of CJ 15-40 before local inventories were depleted. I'm good for 3 years, as I change annually, which is about right for the miles I drive and my "preferred" mileage change interval. (VERY long compared to what you guys do). I also Blackstone every change. I have 6 reports now covering almost 5 years and 60K miles of ownership. I'm very comfortable with my change interval strategy.

I have learned that there is still a readily available CI category 15/40 from Caterpillar. Comes in 5-gallon Cat-branded buckets. For guys that would like to use the old spec CI oils.

Though it's not on Ford's approved list. Navistar approved the ck-4 standard for their engines.

Sorry for my ignorance, but did I miss something? What's this "approved" list of oil you all are referring to? I'm about to start buying stuff for my first round of fluid changes on my truck and this post caught my eye. I had settled on the T6 and will probably still use it, just wondering about this list.

Google it and you will find the list. I will probably continue to use t6 after this oil change l.

Due to all the new emissions stuff on newer trucks, they started using ck4. Ford said it's not good for the powerstroke engines.

Did ford actually test ck-4 in the 7.3, 6.0? Navistar/international approved ck-4 right?

Idk. I would think they only tested it in the 6.7.
