      Rotella T-6. I have read nothing but good things about it on BITOG so I use it in my small 4-stroke engines, my chevy 1500 in the summer, and in the boat.

        Valvoline premium blue 15w40. It was rated as the best non synthetic oil and one of the best overall in a diesel oil study.

            Used mobil one 15w50 full synthetic yesterday, jug says it has extra zinc for "high performance engines" plus it was 13$ for a 5 qt jug at walmart, I'm still happy about that deal!
