Everyone has to make the "OIL" decision on there own and you cant go wrong buying dealer oil but not to ruffle any feathers here but I think that needing to run 0w-40 or 2w-50 because the engine will get ruined if you don't is hog wash. The extremes in temperatures these vehicles run in world wide means that the tolerances cant be that tight. I run Rotella 5w-40 synthetic diesel oil in everything I own. From my lawn mower to my motorcycles, 4 wheelers, wifes van and my diesel pick up. $18 at Wal Mart for a gallon and if you haven't got a Wal Mart then it is available at any truck stop in the country. I always have at least a couple of gallons on hand. To each his own but I dont subscribe to the notion that it has to be exactly the oil in the owners manual especially when they come up with some garbage like 2w-50. Where else can that be purchased? Come on.
