    I am new to the diesel trucks end of things. I have been running all castrol in all of my other gas trucks and mowers. The guy i just bought the truck from said he has been running mystic brand oil in the truck for a while. I was just curious what the opinions are on different brands. I have been hearing alot about rotella from most of the diesel guys. Is rotella pretty much what everyone is running? I had thought about running castrol since i have so much of it already i buy cases and cases. Anything anyone has bad to say about castrol in diesels? The truck is a 1995 dodge 12 valve with 215000 mi

    Did use Rotella, switched to Amsoil. Can go 15K or one calendar year, whichever comes first. :clapping:

    Mobil1 Delvac in everything, trucks and skidloaders. With those high miles though I would stick with Rotella or Delo 400

    Would there be anything wrong with running castrol in it?

    As long as it is a diesel oil you'll be fine.
