Re: Advice on oil type sought

I'd stick with the "C" rating oil regardless of grade. "C" grade oils are formulated for compression (hence "C") engines. The "S" rating oils are for spark plug ignited engines (hence "S").
You've got a diesel right? It is a compression engine. Different additives for diesel.
