    Take a look at Amsoil's ACD heavy duty diesel oil,
    it's fully synthetic and meets the requirements for
    both straight 30 and 10w30 weights.

    It's a heavy duty engine oil (HDEO) with a strong additive package and high TBN (acid neutralizing capacity).

    It's also recommended as a "fleet" oil for both diesel and gasoline engines, I plan to use this one oil in my mowers and my trucks.

    I've also installed Amsoil's bypass filter systems, when used with periodic oil analysis you can greatly extend
    oil and filter change intervals.
    This saves time, money and also results in increased engine life (the bypass filters down to two microns).

    I just added their "Ams-oiler" pre-oiler which
    mounts right onto the bypass system and supplies
    oil-pressure before start-up, eliminating dry-starts.
    A little pricey but it works great.

    Keep in mind that these systems can be transferred from old to new equipment indefinitely, so in that respect I think they are a very good long term investment.

    Yeah pretty much,

    One of my mowers is a diesel, and I wanted a "Fleet" oil that I could use in everything, so that swayed me towards the ACD.

    If you don't plan to run a bypass filter, then you will need to change the oil and filter much more often. So you would probably do better with a good quality locally available conventional oil (like Shell Rotella or Chevron Delo).

    The main benefit of a synthetic oil is realized with extended
    drain intervals when used in conjunction with a bypass filtration system.

    Lots of good info can be found here:
