two questions?

I bought a used 2007 5.9l Cummins. I was wondering what others are running in there diesel. Brand vs weight vs longevity or performance. I know it doesn't get that cold here but do people switch oil for winter. Another question what additives (to diesel) do you use if any? I've herd some guys don't use any and some do. Happy new years everyone.

Regular Rotella, 15/40. Diesel Kleen in every tank.

Always use good quality filters.

Been running 15/40 rotella in my 04' year round since 06'. I don't use fuel additives and I use Baldwin 5 micron fuel filters. So far no problems with 175k miles.

MOPAR should be fine. Orange Fram would be last choice.

Delo 15/40 since 2001 and in my old diesels. I added a little 2 stroke or atf oil to the fuel due to the low sulfur in the fuel now.
