My 2011 F350 6.7 superduty dually rolling over 100,000 mile mark and just wondering any thoughts about additives to engine oil..etc
This is true. I retired from the ExxonMobil refinery in Beaumont, Texas &, while I never worked at the Blending & Packaging Plant, I have seen it & knew guys that worked there. They put the same oil in different bottles or jugs for different customers. As long as the oil meets specs (& it does) it’s fine.Wal Mart oil is good oil. Like Motorcraft oil, some one makes it and bottles it for both.
Trying to figure out how to get further details without sounding argumentative.
Since motor oil is a combination of base stock and additives, is it possible that even though the Base stock was reported to you as the same in all brands that your co-workers forgot to consider that the additives were of different quality/quantity depending on what that particular customer wanted?
I understand your question as legitimate & I don’t find it argumentative. Of course, additive packages will differ from one brand of oil to another & this is taken care of at the Blending & Packaging Plant (B&P). However, there are many brands that will share identical additives. Essentially, this is the same oil in different bottles or jugs. The key to engine oil is to check the “starburst” & follow the manufacturer’s recommendation.
