Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harley Davidson 2018 Road Glide I used to run this oil in my Victory Cross Country, but I did feel the clutch slipping from time to time. Like most Harley guy's, I was very finicky with how I maintain my bike. I purchased an S&S 124CI kit for my Road Glide and was waiting for the parts to arrive. I still needed to ride until then, but my bike needed an oil change so I took the chance because I knew how well my Victory ran with it, plus I was just trying to be cheap since I had to dump the oil anyway for the new motor build and I didn't have to worry about it slipping because I did not use it on the primary or transmission side. At the end of the day I'm glad I tried it and I love it so much, Im selling the 124CI and gonna be content with just a Cam upgrade. The bike runs so smooth, quite and MPG went up. Its like a brand new bike with 34k miles on it. I will continue to run this as motor oil and use recommended oil for the primary and transmission going forward. This product is the best thing the shelf.

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.

I got a 5.9 Cummings turbo diesel I currently run  Shell Rotella 15/40 oil now I’d like to switch to synthetic I have 66,000 miles on it now would this 5/40 synthetic oil be good for this motor especially in Michigan winters?

Asked by: 69Kevin
First, synthetic oil provides superior protection vs. a conventional lubricant which is what Rotella T4 15W40 is. Next, Rotella T6 5W40 grade full synthetic will perform better particularly in colder weather climates. The lubricant will flow faster during the key start up phase of the engine. Switching to Rotella T6 5W40 full synthetic will provide superior wear protection.
