I have been using 10-30 but the truck runs slightly rougher the past couple of

The oil weight has nothing to do with rough running, just change it every 3,000 miles. Try tuning it up.

I probably shouldn't have mentioned rough running. It is very slight. I am a stickler about changing the oil, which is probably why the truck is doing so well at 26.5 years. I would still like to hear about other people's experiences with oil weight. As far as a tune-up, I plan to it when it is due. Maybe a little sooner.

If the engine is not using oil I would stick with what you are using. If it is you could try 10W-40.
