yes sir, a mobile horse shoeing shop. right now i have a very small trailer that works great but the the long range plans are to put a shoeing body on my wife's truck. i'll stick with T6 or amsoil in the duramax, thanks!

Agree with above. (unless there is some other rating floating around that they didn't advertise in their PDS). What's wrong with any of today's CJ-4 oils that can be found on sale? How cheap can you get the Pentosin versus a good dino 15w-40 on sale? The LBZ spec's CH-4 or higher; at least that's what my 2006 LBZ manual states. It may have changed in the 2007 manual. Regarless, a CJ-4 is excellent in the Dmax application, and there are far too many UOAs to state otherwise.

ACEA B4 is pretty much the equivalent of API CH-4, and some would argue that it is better than CH-4. I would not hesitate to use the Pentosin in the DMax. I am currently running Motul 505.01 Specific in my 02 Excursion which calls for CH-4.
