    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.
