I would have bought the 0w40 for a gasser, I would not use it in a diesel

I wish I knew what spec sheet to use for M119.
0W40 meets 229.3 and 229.5, which is why I use it in the M112.

From Mobil:

Their oil finder says to use 229.3 or 229.5, and recommends their 0W40 and 5W50.

0W40 has zinc and phosphorus levels of 1000 and 1100 ppm, as does 5W50.
10W40 high mileage is also 1000 and 1100.
15w50 that I use in my 2.3-16 is 1200 and 1300
5W40 TDT is 1130 and 1250. Does 13% more really make a difference? If so, am I better off with the 15W50? I already have about 7-8 qts of that in the garage.
