    I know. That's why I said it. I'm fully expecting to get grilled for at least 2 other items on my list. I got a fat butt. I can take a spanking.

    It's good oil. Only a few bucks more than T6. I consider it equal to T6.

    Here's a UOA comparing:

    •Rotella T6 0w40

    •Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5w40

    •Mystik JT8 15w40 Synblend

    With the 15w40 Synblend showing the best wear results.

    I have M1 TDT 5w40 in the sump now from over winter and will be changing it to Red Line 15w40 very soon.

    Dave just pick a 10k rated oil filter and change them even if you are not changing the oil.

    Lastly, if you do a lot of short driving or cold weather ... change your oil more frequently. I just changed my oil at 4800 miles after the winter finally ended. I changed in Sept. 22, 2018 and just completed the change on April 20, 2019.
    BINGO! Winning comment. Wife's turbo gasser gets 5k oil changes not manufacturers 10k for exactly the same reason.

    It's all speculation and possibly a waste unless you have OA completed. But it's yours and if you feel better....

    I'm using T6. Here's my last sample report. I had to take a screen shot of only the top portion but will post the entire report if someone can tell me how to upload a PDF. And I was wrong on my initial post--Blackstone has me at 21k miles, not 22k (apparently I'm getting old-timers disease!).
