Engine Oil Recommendation

Hello,

I am due to change the oil in my 19J engine. It is a 60k mile engine in good shape. I wondered if anyone had recommendations as to the best brand of oil to use and how much oil i will need?

Thank you,
Ben

15-40 Rotella. Home Depot has 5qt jugs for $13. Two jugs will do the trick. Fill your oil filter.

And an equivalent filter to a Fram PH8A. Very common size.

I have become a fan of Amsoil 15W40. It is more expensive than Rotella but I change it 1/2 as often.
