Re: Advice on oil type sought

If 15w40 was available when they wrote the manual, they'd have recommended it. Are you sure you can't get Shell Rotella T down there? It's a widely available product. I get mine from Walmart. It's the benchmark diesel oil.

But I looked up the Chevron and it looks pretty good.
