You might want to check out this page. It says that some are orange and Rotella is yellow. Don't know anything about the page but it says they've been around since 1929. Take it for what it's worth.

I guess I should have included the link. I can't get the link thing on the site to work but if you cut and paste this is should work:

Use only the same color. If you're not 100% sure, check with your company's maintenance or road service department.

You might also want to check on the filler cap, it might specify what you need.

Why not call your company or ever the truck dealership and ask? i get all my fluids from our company parts department so they cant blame me for putting in the wrong stuff!

they should be able to even send a pic of the bottle.

If you're in a new truck, it should have the manual in there for the engine. Not the truck manufacturer byr the engine and it will contain all the fluid specs.
