Why?

Been running it for 50,000 miles with no problems?

Just curious why you say bad news? It's the Rotella 5w40 Diesel Synthetic, right?

in most cases it seems to wreak havoc on 6.0 injectors..you will see alot of injector failures with that oil plus rough idle.

royal purple is junk.


I would only suggest Motorcraft oil, full synthetic or regular or my personal favorite is the Valvoline Extreme Premium Blue 5w-40

I also run rotella oil in my pick-up. It is good stuff. All my buddys also run rotella in there 7.3 and 6.0. My dad runs rotella in his peterbilt. Abrannan do you have any proof that rotella is bad for the 6.0 or is it just hear say??

Here is more info. for anyone looking at running rotella.

its not hear say..its every person that calls me and says hey..my truck has a rough idle..I ask what oil they are running..most times..its rotella, not always..

also when a truck comes in to the dealership with any injector issues, I will ask..what oill..you guessed it..Rotella..

Some people have ok luck with it..I wouldnt suggest it..HUEI injectors are too finicky.
