I run t6, if you look in your owners manual 5-40 covers all temps and all duties light or severe. I like to think that is what the truck was designed for. At very least it is easy,no worries about having to time your oil changes with the seasons.

Any of the 5W-40 synthetics should do well. I use T6 because it was $6-7 cheaper per gallon than Mobil Delvac and I couldn't find Delo 5w-40 at my Walmart.

I personally in your situation would use and 0w40 or a 5w40 but I wouldn't use rotella. I'd use mobil or valvoline

Why not the Rotella? This is my first diesel, been running the Motorcraft conventional, but was looking at switching to synthetic (just ordered T6 actually). In my gas burner, I ran Amsoil, but buying 3+ gallons of Amsoil isn't cost effective

I wouldn't mind a clarification on that. Rotella seemed to be an overwhelming favorite and I bought it for price, but I have an open mind.

I just don't think it's that good of an oil. I tried it in my 6.4 and got a bad uoa back on it and don't care to try it again.

I agree about Rotella. Lots of guys run it, but I never will again. Ran it twice in my 6.4L, it wasn't uncommon to see temps in th 213 to 214 range just cruising the interstate. It always came out looking much dirtier and the second time I ran it I found some shavings on the drain plug.

Valvoline Blue Preimum never got over the 197-198 mark, and always came out much cleaner. Switched back to it after I found the shavings after Rotella run, and never saw the shavings again.

That's just my personal experience and thoughts on it. I never had it tested, so I can't say for certain, but I'll never put it in another of my trucks.
