While the label says "Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Oil", it meets API CJ-4/SM standards.

CJ-4 is diesel engine standard - "For high-speed four-stroke cycle diesel engines designed to meet 2010 model year on-highway and Tier 4 non-road exhaust emission standards as well as for previous model year diesel engines."

SM is gasoline engine standard - "For 2010 and older automotive engines."

based on info from API.ORG [api.org]

Great price. Rebates from shell are good and probably will take 4-6 weeks. Submit online. You can use this oil for small engines and motorcycles as well.

Hmmmm. Im not so sure amazon has this correct. After reading terms i think you only get $7 back on this 3 pack. Only one gallon qualifies of the three. Bulk packaging is not permitted***. Ill have to call rotella tomorrow to ask. If anyone else can tell me in wrong then great!!

edit: im wrong.

This oil is good in everything calling for this weight. I prefer this oil and weight during winter time for my diesel trucks. Its thinner and truck starts easier in very cold weather because of it . I use normal dinosaur rotella during the summer.

You're incorrect. That is bulk packaging of rebate forms (IE, sending 5 forms in 1 envelope).

It is $7/gal max of 4 gal. All they ask for is the receipt showing number of gallons.

If I recall correctly, it had a higher concentration of ZDDP, possibly some other additives, which were useful in a diesel but might be a problem for the catalytic converter on a gas engine.

Then supposedly they reformulated with lower levels of ZDDP and people with diesels were annoyed.

But considering that I run it in a gas engine, and it's just about the only decent oil of this weight available, I'm happy to keep using it.

So mixing a 2.5 gallon and a one gallon is authorized. They had this last year and i but 50 gallons oil a year usually off of rebate deals. I remembered something weird about the rotella one. I think this was the issue.

I was wrong. My bad. After further research i went to rotella.com/rebate and you can click the 3 pack case of t6..... And that counts as one rebate. So you can get 12 total gallon under same rebate name if you go online. Thats my take on it. It says 4 rebates per person. Not 4 gallons per person.

Shell Rotella (specifically Rotella T 15w-40) is commonly used in motorcycles because it meets the standards that are recommended for motorcycles, such as JASO-MA and thus has no friction modifiers (not "Energy Conserving") that are not recommended for wet clutches.

Its marketed towards diesels, but its totally fine for motorcycles, the certifications and numerous articles are evidence to this. I use Rotella T it in my bikes because its cheaper than oil marketed towards motorcycles and does the same job.

Is this oil Dexos2 approved? New to the diesel life. Just got a new Colorado Duramax and I love this thing.
