Don't you mean Rotella T 5W40? If your oil is cleaner, maybe your engine is putting less soot in the oil or maybe the oil is not doing as good a job holding the soot in suspension as what you replaced.
I use Rotella T 5W40 and I am happy with the price and availability. My oil gets black as coal after a few hundred miles from change.
Putting superior Amsoil in the CRD engine is like watching two beautiful women mud wrestle. When looking at the long list of non-oil problems with the CRD, I don't think it deserves oil that good.

The 'long list' of symptoms points towards two causes:
- Synchronization of the Emission control system
- Higher torque for slower driving habits
Do you prefer to change your oil more often while others watch mud wrestling? Now I get a better understanding of where our reputation comes from

Siberia... Lubrication specialist is selling a kit with a filter (1R0750) at 3 micron but with no water separator, the filter should be cheaper that the one that we use and better. the kit with filter is $60.00 I think I going to buy one. What do you think.

When you say no water separator do you mean that there is no place for the electrical sensor? I am not familiar with the product you mention. Also, I have yet to find any water in my drained fuel. Is there a drain on the filter you mention?

Siberia... Yes there is no water drain so the electrical have to stay aside. the kit is cat #175-2949 it come with an adapter for the filter that you install (for a different thread) and then you install the filter. the filter is made by caterpillar. I was looking yesterday for a filter for our system and i found a filter cross reference made by Wix and the # is 33647 for about $26.00 but no mention of the micron rating. If i find that the micron is 10 or less i will buy it and forget about the conversion.

You have to consider 2 microns for the fuel filter rating. The moving components of the injectors and pump are machined with a very tight tolerance. If larger solid particles reach the high pressure side of the pump, you may face expensive issues.
