    Oil?

    What type of oil are you guys and girls running in your M10's?

    I run 15w-40 synth diesel oil, or 15w-50 mobil 1.

      Yes, Use oil. Good idea, that.

      Mobil 1 15-50 or the Hardly Davinport oil is good- hi zddp.

      Brad Penn makes high zddp oils, too.

                  Honestly it has the same properties as regular conventional oils have, they just have more additives and cleaning properties because diesel is so dirty.. that being said I don't think you'd need bring down oil change intervals.. I could be wrong about all of this though lol - I am also curious because i have thought about it too. For now I run 20W50 and in the winter before i had my iX I would use 10W30 which is what I do now with my iX.
