Will it help mileage and power of a 6.0 versus Rotella or other like brands?

How many miles does this engine have?

you see, the synth oils are slicker and "thiner"... the molecules have different shapes to help the internal movement thus the easier flow thus the "thiner" comment tongue

So, an engine with some wear inside would benefit from a thincker oil, to help reduce the oil consuption.

If this engine has some miles in it, I'd stick with the usual blend. Its not the best thing to switch from oil blend to oild blend regularly.

There is no doubt, that synthetic is better. But you have to watch the brand, not all synthetic companies show outstanding test results. Independent lab tests show that Amosil is top notch. Check them out at www.amosil.com. Also, call Amsoil's Tech line and they will tell you exactly what you should do in your case scenario.

Synthetic oils are a step above conventional oils for their properties have been tailored for the engines, HOWEVER make sure that you check the API rating of the oil. The little "starburst" that has a few letters and numbers for a diesel they will start with C and gas with a S the second letter and the numbers define the generation of the standard for the oilbe sure to NEVER use an oil that has a lower alphabetic and numeric code than what your owner's manual specifies. These standards are made in agreement with your engine's maker and the oil company to handle the temperatures, pressures, soot load, etc. for that engine, the oils are backwards compatible but not forward so if it says use CD-2, CF-4 is fine BUT CB is not.
