I was just looking up some oil on WM's website and came across M1 oils. WM sells so many different M1 oils , how do you decide which one to use?
"IF" you owned my truck, and wanted to use M1 oil in the engine, which M1 oil-weight would you use? This engine can use 0W20, 0W30, 0W40, 5W20, and 5W30 oil. It doesn't burn or leak any oil.
I'm asking this because if I were to do my next OCI using M1 (I have Castrol 0W40 on deck for my next OCI) I would most likely choose a HM 5W30 with a FU/MC oil filter, run to 5K-7.5K miles.

I see you are using the oil filter for on OCI only. With the Ultra being good for 15K miles, you could run that filter for two OCI.

Because I have a idea of your maintenance history on your truck. M-1 5W30. But you could get away with any modern spec PCMO.

I don't want to offend you, but you must not know me very well when it comes to me and oil filters. I NEVER use an oil filter for more than 1 OCI. smile

Nothing wrong with the HM 5w30 you want to use. I've always liked their 0w30 though smile

A truck is so easy to get under-that is why

That, and using an oil filter more than once makes about as much sense as a submarine with a screen door!

I respect the opions of those who recommend the HM oils, but I am holding off until I see an oil leak. Regular M1 5-30 sounds good to me, maybe 5-40 for the summer or the 0-40 you have already planned. I have 5-40 on deck for this summer.

Ok, fine, M1 5-30 regular, non-HM, non-extended, non-annual.
