I read above that the zinc additive (ZDDP), which has been in our dino-based oils forever, and which has been proven for the same amount of time to reduce wear, has been removed from diesel oils...that is a new one for me, i thought it was the gasser-oils that had that epa mandate, and diesel was exempt..dut i dunno. Anyway, Ford motorcraft diesel oil has the most...
