It's great oil. A real sleeper. Works great in most every gas and diesel engine. It's bit thick at higher temps for some engines calling for say a 5w-20 however it is one of my favorites for an off the shelf oil. It was just recently reformulated to drop a key anti wear additives for catalytic converters. I really like the old 5w-40 but the new formula will have to again prove it's self before I go crazy over it.

I've been stocking up on the old stuff when I see it.

I like Rotella. Family has been using in diesels about as long as I can remember.

I run rotella in my Cummins and am happy with it. It's good oil and is relatively cheap compared to others.

I've been running it in my Cummins. I used to change on a 5500 mile basis after having 2 oil analysis' done to make sure that 5500 was still a good interval. I switched to going by every 200-250 hours of use rather than mileage since we work this thing pretty hard plowing and it doesn't rack up that much mileage.
