Ran rotella 15w40 since new. No oil related issues in a 120000 miles. Run rotella 5w40 in my new 6.7 with no worries.

Run what ever diesel oil you want just keep if fresh and use the revx additive.

I read up on this same topic a lot on the diesel forums. seems that the popular oil is delo 5w40 syn. I put it in mine with rev x and its been great.. i switched from schaffers which was terrible on cold starts.. before that was rotella 15w40. switching from the rotella to the schaffers I noticed a difference immediately. stay away from the schaffers. the big topic of discussion on the diesel forums what phosphorus in the oil.. some connection between phosphorus content and resistance to inje for spool valve sticktion.
