    A "4X4," "truck," or "diesel/mixed fleet" oil works great in mine... However, your reaction to such an oil has not been positive so far.

    I'd recommend you consider any API SL or SM rated 5W-40 or 0W-40. These are generally going to be GrIII, IV, or V base oils designed for HD fleet use. Mobil Delvac1, Mobil1 TurboDiesel Truck/SUV, Shell Rotella T6 and so on is where I'd shop.

    I've used the Mobil1 TurboDiesel 5W-40 since 2004 or so but am now finding my motor consumes less of the Shell Rotella T6 5W-40, so for the past year or so I've used the Rotella T6.

    I change oil every 7,500 miles or so. I do keep it topped up fully.

    By the way, all this info is useless. What you need are data. To find data, go to Bob Is the Oil Guy's site, and look for used oil analyses. Data matter. Opinions do not.
