What is the difference between Rotella and Delvac? Would it not be better to run synthetic in the Diesel? Just curious, use to run that in everything else.

Any oil that meets specs.


The syn oils are great but unless you are running a extended drain program or seeing extreme temps the additional $ is not justified. Your money would be better spent on bypass filtration. Edited by: a bear

a bear, I agree.





Edit: I should ad that I change my oil every 3000 miles, so thats why I stick with dino oil. If I went the recomended oil change intervals by the manufacturer, then MAYBE i'd use synthetic. I've had plenty of vehicles(3 to be exact) with over 100,000 miles on them and NOT a drop of synthetic was ever put in them. So i'll stick with what I know works. And obviously all you synthetic users will do the same.


Has anyone on this board actually had an engine failure due to the oil they chose to use? If so, do you have documented proof? Just curious is all.Edited by: 338_

a bear,


You bring up a good point about synthetic. Question is, can dino oil go 10k in the Dmax?? This seems to be what my OLM is telling me to change the oil at. I may end up just having to have the oil analized to see if it can hold up to OLM changes.


By the way I am using Delo 400 15w-40 as well.

Dello 400 ran it for the 23000 miles on my truck,even at 5000 mile intervals looked brand new.
