My favorite oil for my 950 is the 10-30 chevron blue bottle. Something like $1.30 per quart.

Shell Rotella T if you run a Rekluse this is what they suggest. I just change my oil more often and still save a few bucks.

I run Chevron Dello 400 15w50 in my 950. Its designed for diesels and actually keeps the motor really clean. As far as price I dont know, I get it for free at my work
