You have to use CJ-4 to prevent the DPF from getting gummed up. One difference is in the additives (there are less in CJ-4 I think).

Check out this review of oils. Credit to the original poster on another forum.

I'm really starting to wonder if those of us without our DPF's should be switching to CI-4 plus, after reading that.

CJ-4 oils have much less Sulfated Ash than the older CI-4 oils do, both the Sulfur and Ash in older oils DAMAGE the DPF.

Synthetics are fine more heat tolerant and pour point very low temp. and no wax.

It will not hurt anything, I tell my customers since Amsoil cost is more to wait a couple of oil changes just to clean all the casting sand and any foreign stuff cleaned out, before you spend a lot of money.
Some think it prevents break in but synthetics still allows the engine to break in.
A lot of cars in today's market come from the factory with synthetics.
