Hello all.
Just purchased our first diesel,2017 F250 King Ranch 4x4, short box. What a truck !
Looking for tips from experienced folks regarding fuel quality (cetane?, name brands, etc), synthetic vs syn blend oil, change oil yourself? Etc.
Thanks in advance guys.

Stay away from bio-diesel.

Read owners manual, several times. It will give the type of oil to use. If there is synthetic that meets the requirements then use it. My son switched over to Amsoil in his diesel tractor and was very pleased with it this winter- much easier starting.

 

 pay attention to emissions system and requirements.

Be ready for higher maintainence costs for the diesel compared to gas.

Welcome to the forums....more a curiosity than a question but you bought a Ford F250, but your screen name is RAM....interesting choice. Good luck with your truck though and again, welcome.
