    My favorite oil for my 950 is the 10-30 chevron blue bottle. Something like $1.30 per quart.

    Shell Rotella T if you run a Rekluse this is what they suggest. I just change my oil more often and still save a few bucks.

    I run Chevron Dello 400 15w50 in my 950. Its designed for diesels and actually keeps the motor really clean. As far as price I dont know, I get it for free at my work :evil

    to be honest I thought this would turn into a swhy didnt you search thread.. suprisingly very cordial in here.. In honesty I usually use mobil 1 Vtwin.. Thought throwing out the chevron would get me a little flameage going for the heck of it.
