Mobil 1 5w/40 Truck/Diesel has a higher ZDDP number than its 15w/50 brother. Use it straight, or mix it 50/50 with the 15w/50. It's around the same price as the 5-qt jugs at Walmart, except that it is a 4-qt jug, but at least it's easy to find.

Prior to the new EPA regs, Mobil 1 carried ZDDP at levels in the 1300 to 1500 ppm range. Sorry for the bad tidings.
There are work arounds, but I didn't want to turn this thread into another oil discussion thread. Just do your research.
This is incorrect information ... please check the product data sheets for Mobil-1 before posting.
The attached PDF highlights 3 different M-1 engine oils with ZDDP above 1300 ppm.
