Is this good Diesel oil ? Anyone have a recent analysis on it? The AQI website shows one but itís from back in 2013 when it was made by a different company and the results look like a mistake to me. It says the oil is good to go but only has a little over 600ppm phosphorus and that was a cj4/sm oil. Itís on Fords approved list some Iím thinking it should be decent.... any help appreciated

welcome to the site!

Yes - it's good oil. On Ford's approved list and also API listed.

There are very few "bad" oils on the market. Only those without an API cert and questionable lineage. (Some companies such as Amsoil don't seek API license on all their products, but they have a good standing in the market.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
