Well.. I had a very bad experience with the Rotella 15w-40 T4. It's never going in any of my engines EVER. Only used it for one season. Minimal driving on Vintage cruises.

The oil had turned into the equivalent of Bunker C oil from the Exxon Valdez. Literally had turned into a slimey molasses type consistency. Machine shop was appalled at the slimey mess it had become. Going back to Synthetics ( Amsoil 10w-40 ) and never using Dino oil again.
