Oil Brand

About that time to change the oil. Of course I have switched to synthetic in the past and wanted to see everyones thoughts were and brand of oil. Should I also do a blend on this change the full synthetic on the next or can I go right to it. I plan to use Mobile1 Full Synthetic like I have in the past, thoughts?

If it were me, I'd go right to full-synthetic. That's what I did when I switched from dino-oil. I use Rotella T6. I've heard good things about the Mobil 1.

Thank you for the heads up. The name Rotella has came up but I have used Mobile1 in all my Ford vehicles so I will still consider other options.

Nothing wrong with doing the ol' "Go with what you know!" It's worked for me for a lot of years.

I have been using Rotella since I got my truck and have been happy. Took it to the dealer for an upper pan gasket leak, they filled it with motor craft 15w 40 and I had the typewriter noise instantly. Left the oil in for about 2000 miles and changed out to Rotella and no more noise. Mobil 1 makes good products and I use it in my other cars, sure they make good diesel oil too. I have been a fan of synthetic oil for many years now.

So I am seeing a lot of those using Rotella. I live in southern Va where in the winter the temp gets to the lower 30's and or high 20's. What weight do you all recommend?

@lowbottom74 : Nothing wrong with using a 10w30 (blended) in that area. I've used it plenty with no issues. As far as "mixing" oils, just pour it in and go. I'd say at least two full changes before you "flush" out the older oil. No big deal to switch straight to full synthetics.



If you want to stick to a full synthetic most will say 5w40. I think Rotella now has a 15w40 full synthetic. It's more dependent on your driving habits towing, daily driver, long idle etc etc etc.


Is this going to be your first oil change with this truck??

Check out Mobil 1 Delvac ESP 5W40 or 0w40
I’ve been running 0w40 year around in my 2015 F350 since new with great results.
I’ve had a Blackstone Lab analysis on every used oil sample since new.
