Dad acquired a 92' Dakota with 3.9 v6 with 90,xxx on it. He asked about oil for it. Said i could get him HK 10W30 all fleet CJ/SM rated for $8.99 gallon or Rotella T4 conventional 10w30. Rotella conventional 10w30 is $13.47 at Rural King. What say the BITOG faithful?

I was confused because you asked for a pick between the HK and the Rotella. Someone chose HK and then you stated you wonít use it due to Citgo making it.

Iíll play it safe, Rotella.

Dad asked me who made HK; I told him. HE Isnt opposed to using it. He has used rotella before. I vote Rotella as it has good results. Does HK? He said he would let me know soon

PimTac: we also dont know much on HK oils as well. Maybe i am crazy but CITGO could be more forthcoming with info when folks ask.

Adam, I actually agree with you. The Citgo association With Venezuela pretty much crosses that brand off my list. I donít use Arco gasoline for the same reason plus their debit card scam.

You could run anything in that Mopar Dodge. The Rotella will be fine.

car51,

I also have a 3.9 as does my son-in-law. I've used 5w-20, 0w-30, 5w-30 and 10w-30. That engine is VERY easy on oil and doesn't care what you put into it. It didn't run any different, get any better gas mileage and didn't sound any different with any of the oils I tried. So we both just settled on what the factory recommends, 10w-30. Close your eyes and pick a 10w-30 and your father will be fine. I wouldn't use a x40 or HDEO though.

Yes I do. Nobody screwed us more than China and people have no issue using their products. I have an old stash of Citgo 10w30 hdeo. I have no problem using it.
I live in a farm community and Canada throws a 270% tariff on our dairy products..
You could find reasons not to deal with the entire world.
