Would you please tell me...
Would you please tell me engine oil specification that is recommended by the factory for the following trucks?
1. 2012 Volvo VNL64T670; Model D13
2. 2012 Frightener Cascade DETROIT™ DD15
The drain intervals on engine oil for these trucks are 45K and 50k respectively, so we do not want to use something that is not recommend by the factory for such long mile intervals.

the D13 is 15-40 synthetic

the DD15 is either 10-30 or 15-40. we use the 15-40 synthetic on the detroits. factory says either is good.

What is the difference between 15W40 and 10W-30?

We are a bit confused on the D13. If you see click the link below, it recommends 10W-30 for D13 Volvo. So Can we use 15W40?

Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 5 years ago

that is correct. use the 15-40 if you are going long on the oil change intervals.

What is the difference between 15W40 and 10W-30?

Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 5 years ago

the weight of the oil. 10-30 is 10 weight cold and 30 weight hot.

15-40 is 15 cold and 40 hot. 40 weight hot is better protection for the mains and rods. helps keep the oil pressure up where it belongs
