Diesel Motor Oil,1 qt.,5W-40,Rotella T6 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Stars!!! This is the only oil I will use in my 2014 GMC 2500 Diesel! We pull a 37ft 5th wheel and this make one less thing to ever worry about!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome in my 2011 Subaru WRX My turbo loves this stuff. It blows unleaded synthetics out of the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great in Ram 1500 Diesel I have been using this in my 3.0L EcoDiesel since the first oil change; better oil pressure than the OEM oil, and Chrysler has since made this the recommended oil for that engine. 10K mile oil change intervals, doesn't use a drop. Starts fine in cold weather too (only down to -10F here in Texas...).PS: I cannot imagine why someone would use a Diesel oil in a motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good oil Been using in my VW Touareg since I bought it. One a few oils VW approves of. Not any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Diesel Oil I've used this in my Duramax pickup since 2004. I has helped keep my engine like new. I bought a V-4 Honda motorcycle four years ago and was pleased that the ST Owners forum recommended this same oil. After 50,000 miles in less than four years my ST performs like new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the switch to full synthetic I have a 2009 Silverado 3500HD. This is the first time I've used Full Synthetic during an oil change. The Duramax loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my engines running I run Rotella T6 5w-40 in my 2011 Ram 2500 Cummins, and in my 2002 Audi A4 1.8t. The 1.8t is notorious for sludge issues, but Rotella has kept mine clean as can be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I use it in everything including a VW diesel that is only supposed to use Castrol. I haven't had any engine problems in this car for over 200,000 km.
