Delete it and use 10w30 CJ-4.

No thanks. Although, HD diesels have DPF’s and they are just fine with CJ-4

Most HD diesel oils are already "emissions approved" although they may not be as low as the manufacturers like. Showing high iron in my GL as well, going to switch from 0/30 M1 ESP to Rotella T6 in about 1k miles to try and see if theres a difference.

Interesting. I wonder where the silver is from? Here is my 2014 Cruze diesel to compare. I have been running AMSOIL's DHD 5w-30 and I went with a Wix filter this time.

Zinc and phos are just too low for me. I have switched to Mobil 1 TDT in my V6 diesel with 110k on it.

Maybe it’s the biodiesel blends I use? Your Cruze seems to have nearly the same wear numbers other than the silver
