Comparing mobil1 to rotella is like comparing gold to lead. both very heavy, but one basiclly worthless. Rotella just doesn't hold up as well as Mobil 1 in these extreme oil shear engines. Spend the extra coin for the Mobil1. Your injectors will love you for it.

Yup...I wouldn't use that crap in my truck either.

This is what I use.

Valvoline is extremely good oil also, just a little tougher to find. I'd use it or the Mobil1. Both work very well in this engine.
