Shell T6 Full Synthetic 5W-40 Heavy-Duty Motor Oil, 1 gal., 550045347 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off-Label use in Gasoline engine In 2002, I purchased a new Volkswagen GTI with a 200 hp 2.8 liter V6 engine. The manual advised the use of 5W-30, but preferred 5W-40. I did not live near a metro area and the only 5W-40 I could find was Rotella T. I have used this oil ever since and never had an oil related problem. The engine does not use oil, so I never have to top up between 5000 mile oil changes. I had to change the valve cover gasket recently and was pleased to find no shellacking inside the head or valve cover. What residue was there could be wiped away with a cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2009 Yamaha R1 crossplane engine oil Started using this in my 09 R1 after only running Yamalube since day one. The bike runs great. No issues with the clutch. Great price vs Yamalube. Plan to keep using Rotella T6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2004 Suburban Running Great My oil pressure is sitting back up where I like it and reduced engine noise especially on cold starts. Engine sounds much better over all.

Asked by: Tripp56
Hi, Rotella T6 5W-40 meets the JASO MA/MA2 wet clutch friction requirements and is suitable for wet-clutch applications on motorcycles and ATVs provided the SAE viscosity 5W-40 is suitable also. Keith

Does this oil contain Zinc? My 4.0 amc jeep engine has flat tappet lifters and im looking for a oil with zinc in it.

Asked by: That jeep guy
All motor oil‘s contain zinc. It is a major component in motor oil which prevents metal-to-metal contact between engine parts . Your 4.0 AMC Jeep engine with flat tappet lifters require a high zinc motor oil. Our Shell Rotella T6 Full Synthetic 5W 40 Motor Oil our best choice for your engine. It has 1200 ppm of zinc which is great for your classic flat tappet engine.
