Yes, there is a diesel application on the ARX site. I haven't done it myself but have seen a Ford diesel testimonial that was good.

I have it in my 81 240D (OM616 engine) right now. No issues, but may want to add a bit moe because of the large sump. 220k is barely broken in if it was maintained. Ive used FP, LC, Schaeffer's 132, and ARX in OM 616, 617 and 603 diesel engines with great success. Good luck!

I have used it in my Suburban with 6.5L Turbo Diesel and my dad's. The results was very good. The truck ran better.
