BTW, this is the EP HM, i will probably not use any more of this in this truck. I may (gasp) put some 0/20 EP in it... I’d just use MC blend but it cost more. It does spec 5/20 in 2002.

It's time to walk a deeper edge Ducky
Castrol 0w40
Mobil-1 ESP 10w30
Rotella T6 Multi Vehicle 10w30 or Walmart's plain-jane Rotella T6 10W30

I would try something along-the-lines of these above next. Your climate supports the +viscosity change.

OK.
Too much Dexos stashed in the garage? I know, it's addicting - especially now with so much SN Plus on clearance these days.

No stash after I use the last 5 qt jug of this in the Acura shortly.

I suppose M1 0/40 might not be out of the question, but I did not see any significant advantage in the Acura.

Maybe I’ll put some Ravenol in it... that would really be a waste... I’ll grab some flavor of M1 probably, it is cheap on rebates... got a year to decide probably...
