Buy some Shell Rotella T6 5W-40 Full Synthetic oil!

FYI, www.fleetfarm.com is running Shell Rotella T6 this week with the mail in rebate comes to $22 for 2.5gallon jugs or $2.20/Quart!

https://www.fleetfarm.com/detail/she...8?Ntt=t6%20oil

If you are near a Fleet Farm, stock up if you can and are fond of this oil. I run it in all my vehicles.

Enjoy!

Mike

IMHO, it's an internal combustion engine oil

Engine oil choices are like noses and anuses, everybody's got a different one

I've done the spec comparisons against the AMSOIL I was using for 20 years and I'm happy with my move to the T6 and the annual mileages my vehicles are used.

After tens of thousands of miles on T6 in my vehicles, nothing has blown up or changed in oil consumption (there is none in my vehicles) or any new leaks materialized. I have observed nothing untoward in engine oil related items.

Enjoy your research.

Mike

A number of years ago shortly after T6 first debuted, there was a lot of enthusiasm for it in the auto community.

I did research of T6 specs and posted it here:

Quite a few folk in the motorcycle community swear by this same oil, using in their motorcycles. I'd try it in my cars and motorcycle in a heart-beat (based on what I read) but it's not available in this part of the world.

Found something new today...

Is this when you're lucky that's all that happened or unlucky that it happened?
