congrats on your new diesel.you are going to love towing with this engine and trans.although i have a powerstroke,i am a previous gm gas owner.have been driving fords for the past 15 yrs since my brother is a ford tech.here is my brothers advice to me ever since i have owned my 6.0 powerstroke 2005.1)change oil every 5000 mile with oil filter.i have used 5w40 rotella since 20000 miles ,truck now has 50000 miles on it.2)change fuel filters every other oil change.3)buy your fuel from stations that you know that pump lots of diesel fuel.4)use a cetane booster since these v8 diesel need more than 45 cetane to perform effectively.most fuel stations are dispensing diesel that is approx. 40 cetane.my brother commented that most of the diesels they see in the shop are suffering from lack of proper maintenance or chip enhancements.ive run my truck stock from day one and followed my brothers advice and have not had any problems except for a recent drivers side ball joint replacement.i always use tow/haul mode when im hooked up to my trailer.i asked my brother about this and he told me always to use tow /haul especially with the combined weight that i have on the combo.again good luck with your new truck.my brothers dealership is one of the bigger commercial truck facilities in pa.
