Nope. 15/40 rotella T is pretty common for diesels though.
Never heard of 15/50.

15/40 recommended, typically Mobil 1 or Shell Rotella is what people use. Also popular and rated for diesel engines.

If I can’t find oil for my 351w, I’ve moved on to the afterlife.

Haven't experienced that here in South Carolina so far. Always been available at Walmart. Hope that is not a sign of what may happen. Never know with this new administration if you know what I mean.
