I've got a 2001 F350 super duty that I bought new in november of 2000 and just turned to 20k miles.I run synthetic in all my cars but I really know nothing about synthetic oils for a turbo diesel.Can someone please recommend a very good quality oil for this truck.Cost is not a consideration and I do change the oil every 3k miles.Thank you.

Oh yeah,
Will it still be a 15w/40 weight with synthetic as well?

Here's what Mobil 1 says about it:

"Myth:
Mobil 1 can't be used in diesel engines.

Reality:
Mobil 1 will provide excellent service for passenger car and light duty truck diesel engines (API CF or CD), as well as European diesel cars that require oils to meet specific car builder approvals or ACEA-quality oils. (This is the oil specification used in Europe and developed by European car companies.) Additionally, Mobil 1 Truck & SUV Formula is designed specifically for light-duty diesels that require an API CI-4 oil. Be sure to check the oil quality recommended in your owners' manual for your diesel engine.

Heavy duty truck engines that require API CE, CF-4, CG-4, CH-4 or CI-4 should use one of the products from the Delvac? line ? Mobil Delvac 1? synthetic engine oil or Mobil Delvac 1300 Super?. Mobil Delvac 1 synthetic oil can help improve fuel economy, extend oil drain intervals, extend engine life, provide enhanced wear/cleanliness protection and reduce oil consumption."

I would stay with the same weight of oil that is specified in your owner's manual.
