Thanks.

What were you doing with the truck to categorize the use as "severe" ?

Have you used anything else besides ST 15w-40 in this truck? Would be nice to see if another brand of oil had the same thing with thin viscosity like they mentioned in this UOA.

Mostly heavy towing all summer...12k # or more, lots of idling through cattle pastures, extreme summer temps, one long trip to pick up a trailer that was 15 hours away. Man, when I lay it all out, I am pretty impressed with this oil LOL. My oil temps never got above 225, so the truck does a great job of cooling even under pressure.

The PO used conventional Rotella religiously, but I have used ST since I have owned it. I bought it two years ago and have put about 50k on it since then.

Is it severe use? Sounds more like it was used the way it was intended.

5k is pretty doable on just about any oil.

What does the owners manual say?

I have used this oil in my diesel truck for at least 2 years, there is nothing wrong with this oil.

I bought whatever is the cheapest. This time, the Mobil Delvac 1300S is cheaper after rebate.
So that is what I will use next.

Is this UOA is for ST conventional or synthetic?

Ahh yea sounds like what any manufacturer would considered severe use...

1) Mostly heavy towing all summer...12k # or more
2) Lots of idling through cattle pastures
3) Extreme summer temps, one long trip to pick up a trailer that was 15 hours away

To be honest I am impressed with your UOA for a cheap conventional oil. I would definitely agree with you that you put it through severe use.

What oil filter do you use?

Motorcraft from Walmart...10 bucks. They are well made and tough.

Definitely what Ford would consider severe service conditions. Definitely performed well.

Yeah, I would say that's pretty severe considering dust conditions, dry grass, high outside temps, and the heavy towing for 75% of the miles used. "Normal" might be city driving, very little towing, and no dusty conditions. This was far from that, owners manual or not.
