Mike opinions will vary all over the place but I have been using Rotella 15 40 in everything I own from the wife's Nissan 240 to my T with no harm. My Cherokee has over 255,000 miles. KGB

Ditto to what Keith said. When I had a job (retired) part of my department included a slew of school busses, at first all gasoline, then diesel. We ran Rotella in 'em all with no issues whatsoever. Still the best oil around. And I run it in all my T's and the Model A. 10W-30.

HEY Mike be care full with the oil you put in newer cars and trucks the oil needs to be the right grade and spec here in Canada they call for 5w20. the oil galleries are a lot smaller and if you use to thick oil thing will not get oil fast enough and if your truck has cylinder deactivation from 8 cyl down to 4cyl the wrong oil will not let that work proper and the engine will miss and the dealer will void your warranty. your ses lite will come on and the code will be you have not the right oil. The new cars and trucks drive you crazy any more to get the right fluids.Ross

I have used different grades of diesel oil for years in all kinds of equipment, both synthetic and conventional mineral oil. In the lawn equipment I use Rotella and have done so for years. Since I don't mow the lawn or spilt wood when it's cold, there's not a problem. For the vehicles (Silverado and Escape), I use Amsoil 5W-40 synthetic diesel oil that is changed every 6 months. I've never had lubrication related problems with any of my stuff. I always figured that if oil will hold up to the pressures, contamination issues, and hammering in a diesel, it will do just fine in a gas engine.
