    I just bought a new F250 PowerStroke and I am thinking of running Dello 400 15w40 oil like we run in our 7.3 International 4700. Anyone running this oil in their PSD? If not, what is everyone running?

    in my own truck I use Mobil 1540 from costco since its a very good price. i still get the filter from walmart, and get the air and fuel from DIS or other online sources.

    in the company trucks I use napa's oil. sometimes shop around, and sometimes bite the bullet and buy from NAPA or ford.

    as long as you keep the oil in there, the psd will keep ticking. I have a truck 12 years old in the fleet and its still cruising along.

    About how long does it usually take to "break in" a PSD? Ford said about 1500 miles but I was wondering what you all have found. I just burnt my 1st tank of fuel and got about 10mpg pulling my 20' enclosed trailer and driving empty around town. As of now it has almost 400 miles on it.
