just switched from rotella 15-40 to amsoil 15-40 in the truck and the tractors saves money in the long run and it sure beats changing oil every 3000 miles

We change trucks at 6500 miles and equipment at 100 - 200hrs depending on whats it in, thats all with Rotella and our anylis come back better than average. In the jeep crd 10,000 on oil and change the filter at 5,000
