Any of the heavy duty motor oils like rotella , delo 400, mobil 1300,schaffers. Search in the phone book for oil distributers in the yellow pages. The next best thing to high quality synthetics. As posted they are avaiable in 10w30 , in they are good enough for $20,000 engines they are good enough for what we driveEven though I,ve used moer synthetic lubes than I would admit to.

eeh, I meant to post this link: http://www.rotella.com/products/rotella_t.html Why do you not want a HD oil? Please take note that is not a "diesel oil" but rather a "fleet oil." But what difference does it make anyways? You'd prefer to have an inferior oil perhaps? These "fleet oils" are SL rated as well as approved for big diesel engines. You asked for a 10w30 with a good detergent package and the aforementioned fleet oils are exactly that. --Matt

those oils are API SL approved. They will work excellent in your engine. They also happent to do very well in very large engines. --Matt

cause im an idiot. heheh. well like i tried to put castrol gtx in my honda one time. and ever since i first started it it gave off a little stonger smell. like if u were to smell inside the bottle thats what my exaust would smell like. now i tried penzoil and out of the bottle it was kinda a slight scent and thats how it smelled through my exaust. ok you know how im going through auto rx right now, well you know that sweet smell...haha u can smell it in my exaust... so basically thats how i come to the conclusion. but i have no proff that it gives more emmisions but maybe just more smell.

Dig-Drif, Even though I don't approve, we've had lots of oil sniffing on this board. But I have to draw the line at exhaust sniffing. Do yourself a favor, GET OFF THE EXHAUST VAPORS! There...I said it. Maybe your posts will start to make more sense.
