No problem. I'm sure there will be some who disagree with the post. But this is for INFORMATION purposes only, it appears they did a in depth evaluation on these diesel oils. Looks like Redline is #1, but its like $40 bucks a gallon....thats insane. So Rotella and Valvoline Premium Blue done VERY well in the "best" categories

So do you think that Royal Purple 15W-40 is in the best category with the Redline synthetic?

From what i have read, is REDLINE 75w140 Synthetic gear oil is top rated as well as the Amsoil Severe Gear 75w140 synthetic. I'm using the Amsoil now, because it was easier for me to get. I personally believe the Redline is a better product...
