No. I have switched back and forth for years, with many types of trucks. I typically use synthetic in the winter.

Nothing wrong with going back to conventional, Rotella is an excellent oil.

As much as I hate walmart/sams, I am heading to sam's club in a little while to buy some rotella. They had the 2 2.5 gallon jugs for 50 bucks. $10/gallon. :rockin

If I ever removed my emissions crap I'll go back to synthetic.

You should check Tractor Supply then, I usually find it for the same price if not a few cants cheaper:cool:

Also a plus is I do not have to deal with WelfareMart :rockin

I always forget about tractor supply and I am tax exempt (Farm use) and save another 8%.

The answer to your question is yes you may switch anytime you want with no ill effects. Syns and Dino are compatible.

my 06 LBZ was broken in on dino Esso/Exxon XD3 Extra 15W-40
been using Petro Canada's Duron synthetic SAE 5W-40 API CI-4 Plus in winter $30/USgal
get it at our GM dealer where I get AC Delco oil, fuel & ally Filters
going Duron-E XL synthetic blend SAE 15W-40 API CJ-4 for the summer ($38/gal)
change the FS2500 Bypass filter for $50
dump the oil at 5000 miles and throw in a quart of BG DOC pn11232 $25
OK I gotta admit I'm spending a bit but she's not quite stock and when I load her up to 9300 lbs pulling a 10,000 lb trailer she's a working girl!
