Rotella T6

Man what a difference in my truck......I had used Rotella T6 when I first got my truck and was trying to be a cheapskate and go back to regular Rotella T. I didn't save s_hit! After 1500 miles and it running like crap (especially cold), I decided to go back and change it again. I bought the T6 at walmart (they price matched Tractor Supply's price of 19.99 gal) and she already sounds and runs better. I was amazed..................NEVER again on dino oil!

Synthetic oil is awesome. I change mine about once a year (~16,000 miles) and never have any problems. Oil samples come back great, no wear metals.

I did the same thing. Switched from Dino to T6 and it ran great. Tried to switch to Ford motorcraft Synthetic and it ran like crap and after less then 1k I switched back to T6 and it ran great. I have never gone back to any other brand. I bought like 25 gallons last year when I got a coupon for $10 per gallon and went to town.

Never used T6. For my next oil change I'll try it.
