It's more about what's IN the oil than what name brand is on it. The determining factor is what the engine mfg. recommends as far as the weight and additive package.
Most late model cars and light trucks now have roller lifters. Older models (and some newer) used flat tappets. These require a zinc additive that has been phased out of most automotive oils.
Diesel oils still have the additive. So, I use diesel engine oil in everything with flat tappet lifters, automotive oil with roller lifters.
