Re: FCA Changes Motor Oil Spec
There was an article in the TDR (Turbo Diesel Registry - a Cummins site) magazine a while back by John Martin. He is a retired chemical engineerthat was in the oil industry. HE evaluated new oil analysis of recommended oils for the ecodiesel and some standard oils. Basically, the euro spec oil emphasizes emissions equipment longevity over that of the engine and CJ-4, 5-40 is better for your engine and may not get the optimum life out of the after treatment crap. This is good news. Much better oil.
