I run Schaffers 15/40 supreme 7000 and really like it. They have a 5/40 supreme 9000 as well they are both great oils. I buy from them direct and that saves a bit of money.

I had heard that T-6 causes more regens and that valvoline didn't. But maybe that was before T-6 was changed? I noticed that T-6 had a newer looking gal jug the last time I bought it. I regen often, but for shorter distances and that happened after the NoX sensor recall and reflash.

I may try valvoline to see if it makes a difference, but I somehow doubt it. I too like T-6 Because you can get it almost everywhere and it isn't off the charts expensive.

My car had conventional oil in it from the first day. I bought the car in april 2004 with 121k on it until and used the same conventional oil in it until like 187k miles when I started using the shell rotella 5w40 and the car is at 200,350 or so right now. I don't have any other leaks from switching to this oil. I have been going around 5-6k oil changes though..

I will never use T6 again, others have posted the same results.
I wish I could find the stuff in Northern VT. All the places that showed as Valvoline distributors don't carry it and want $44/gal to order it. While I was looking, I found T6 at Tractor Supply for $20 and bought it. I can also get Delo LE and Mobil Truck.

I've been using it for awhile now....good oil in my opinion. I tow heavy and don't worry about the oil.
Any oil out there meeting API Spec CJ-4 would be fine. Price is a consideration, but protection is more important.

I have no trouble finding T6, but want to find Valvoline Premium Blue Extreme 5w40 for its reputed ability to reduce regen frequency. I've seen a few posts that say T6 increases regen frequency so I want to try the Extreme.
I did just find out that NAPA sells the Valvoline PB Extreme for $28/gal which is much cheaper than the $44 I was told at another parts store.

O'Reilly has the Valvoline 5w40 listed on their website for $26 a gallon. Think they would have to order it.

Hmm, my Walmart is up to $21.36 with no signs of a rebate. I did find T6 on sale for $20 at TSC, but still no rebate. I bought it but still want to try the Valvoline PB Extreme which I just found out is at NAPA for $28. But since winter is almost on us and my driving of the truck will go way down, I may wait on the Valvoline as I've already purchased the T6.

I use T6 5 W 30 at 7500 mile intervals and buy it in 2-1/2 gallon containers from my local AutoZone at $54.99 each. I've had nothing but good results from this oil. I do have the DPF delete so I wouldn't know about more frequent regen cycles. Great oil in my opinion.

Hmmm...crude oil prices at 8-year lows and yet motor oil price goes up!

I had the same experience as you, my local Wally World price increased from $19 to $21 in the past 6 weeks and the mail-in rebate ended. I still think this is a great oil for the money and my engine sounds better and my Blackstone reports prove it.

I don't know about the Valvoline PB Extreme you mention but I use their ATF and its top quality.

You can only claim 2 rebates (two jugs). And the rebate is limited by the time frame. I usually go thru 2 maybe 3 oil changes during their rebate period. So Out of 3 oil changes ( 10 or so jugs) I get the rebate on two jugs.

So unless you are going to send the claims in with different names and addresses and buy your oil with no more than two jugs per invoice. It's something looks food on the shelf, but the fine print makes it not so attractive.

Honestly, I believe that Rotella, Mobil, Kendal and Delo are all great oils. But Cummins worked with Valvoline to reduce soot beyond what the others do and the Premium Blue is the only one certified by them and the only one with less ash. Folks on this and other forums have said that Premium Blue Extreme reduces their regen frequency, so I want to try it for myself. I'm sure they all lubricate about the same. I scored 4 gallons of the Valvoline Premium Blue Extreme 5w40 at NAPA today and will give it a shot at my next oil change.
