rotella t6 5W-40???

im not tryin to start an oil war here but ive been hearing a lot of good things about the rotella t6 5w40 i want to use it but it just seems too thin for the summer time. i know it will end up being a 40 weight when it warms up but a 5 weight just seems real thin for me, i may just be over thinking this but im just lookin for some input

I run T6 5W-40 here in FL all year long! Had it in my old 6.0 too. Total of about 30K miles probably running T6.

Many people have and they always come back with better results than most other oils especially conventional oils.
