Mystic JT8

Is anyone familiar with Mystic jt8? It is a "synthetic blend" and is rated CI-4 which is what my 5.9 calls for. I've been reading and I know using the new CJ-4 is not the end of the world but I'd still prefer to use the CI-4 if possible. I think Mystic is ok but what about the synthetic blend?

I would think as long as its CI-4+ 15w40 you should be Ok. My self I've never heard of this oil so take great care if you want to use it for extended oil drain intervals. BTW, If its 5w40 don't use it because when you use 5w40 oil it has to be all synthetic not a synthetic blend.

My owners munual says CI-4 and then CF. It says nothing of CI-4+. Whats the difference? Thanks for the help. Also what do you consider exteded drain intervals? The owners manual calls for 7500 mile changes.

coffee pot,
If you haven't taken the dive and bought the Mystik yet, let me save you some time. I have been running the Valvoline/Cummins Premium Blue 15W40 up until this last oil change when I saw a good sale at the local farm store and decided to try the Mystik on this last oil change. I had researched the Mystik for some time in recent years and was curious to try it. Well, after the change, all seemed the same, engine ran smooth like normal, no excessive smell or smoke. Unfortunately, after a few tanks of fuel, it is very apparent that there is one glaring difference in these two particular oils. My fuel mileage has dropped since the change to Mystik. So, I've already got the Premium Blue in the tool box for my next change. The CI-4+ rating is what many of the better oils on the market are rated at now, including the Premium Blue. On a side note, the analysis of oils on TDR recently proved pretty convincingly that you get the best bang for your buck with the Premium Blue as it was chosen #1 in the test and still wasn't as expensive as many of the other oils. I just wish I would have seen the results of the test before I decided to try the Mystik. I would have just kept using what I have all along. Hope this helps.
:thumbsup

I've looked for the premium blue and can't find it anywhere around here. I did find some Citgo brand CI-4 that they keep in stock all of the time. Would this be ok or should I steer clear? I've thought about ordering some premium blue and will if I have to but I'd really like to find something decent that I can get locally.

Whereabouts are you located? If you've got an Advanced Auto Parts anywhere in your area, they usually stock it.

I believe the NAPA 15w-40 'fleet' is the CI-4+ Premium Blue (Ashland Oil/Valvoline) but I have to admit that the $16 ~ $17 @ gallon Rotella 5w-40 synthetic is making me smile - I've been running it in my BMWs also and the Blackstone UOA indicates it's been doing a good job there too.

I have one right up the street but they don't have it. They're a good bunch of guys though maybe I could talk them into carrying alittle bit of it.

Ha ha, it's ok I can't spell it either. I went to Citgo oil home page and they had a link for Mystic oil so I was thinking maybe they somehow own or make Mystic oil,just a guess though because the web sight doesn't say.

we run it in all of out diesel trucks, tractors, skidloaders.... Never had a problem and we tow and work out tractors and skids every day all day. I don't run it in my personal truck, I run Mobil delvac in my truck. Its the same price as Mystick so i just run it. but im going to be switching to Amsoil shortly.....
