Been using Amsoil DEO 5w40 for a year or so but the prices have risen up sharply here in Canada and I was able to find and purchase the PC Duron for a decent price so why not. :)

My driving habits are still the same since the truck was new, a lot of stop and go driving, with a fair amount of idling.

Don't have an engine timer but tried to use a hand held stop watch for this interval and it looks like in 10,000kms the engine was on for about 200 hrs.

The oil held up very well imo, maybe because there wasn't any fuel dilution this time? Engine has 135,000 miles on it and still running strong, knock on wood. :D

These are the specs for the PC Duron 5w40
