    excellent for winter starting - stops the surge

    Customer review by bob00stroke

    5.0 stars by bob00stroke

    This oil completely stopped the cold start surging on my 2000 7.3 Powerstroke F350, even at below zero without being plugged in...(I am often out of town where I cannot plug in). With regular 15w40 RotellaT, it would not start at all below about 25 degF unless plugged in. With the Rotella T6 5w40 synthetic, it starts, even below zero, without being plugged in....and no surging at all. I assure you I am not employed by Shell or Rotella, I just love this oil. I only run it in the winter though, with 190,000 miles on my truck, I figure the regular Rotella is good enough for you know the synthetic Rotella gets expensive when you are buying 4 gallons.

    Very Good Motorcycle Oil

    Customer review by MotoGPfan

    5.0 stars by MotoGPfan

    Rotella T-6 is a sleeper in the motorcycle world. I have run it in an XR250 dirt bike off road (which is a serious test of how it works in a wet clutch.), a Honda VFR800 sport bike and a Honda Shadow cruiser. Zero problems or issues of any kind. Blackstone lab analysis showed a very good additive package and essentially zero wear after a hard run in the sport bike. This oil is JASO MA rated for wet clutches. The price is a bargain relative to "motorcycle oils". Being a 5W-40 this oil starts easier in cold weather than petro oils. I also use it in a generator and my gas powered pick up truck. This is possibly the most versatile motor oil made. Excellent stuff. (No... I don't work for Shell oil !!)
