    Great product, I use in all 3 of my bikes. No friction modifiers to make the wet clutches slip, and high zinc content is great for reducing wear

                Rotella T is perfect oil for the older engines. I have replaced 2 motors in my Jeeps and this oil is made for this kind of engine. The 4.0 and the 4.2 I6 engines are built tough and run for years, as long as you keep the correct oil in them.

                  Comments about Shell Rotella T 15W-40 Heavy Duty Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

                  I've been using this oil since working as a mechanic in a marina for many years. Rotella 15w-40 was used in all gas and many diesel engines. I found it to be the perfect oil for my Yamaha Vmax. The oil had no friction modifiers that make wet clutches slip.It also has sheer additives for the gear train in a diesel engine. This benifits my trnsmission, as it shares engine oil. This oil is many times better than needed for the hard use of my bike. It see's 10k rpm often and has 46k on it. I've been using Rotella since 12k. Only synthetic could top this in my opinion. And that would be 5w-40 Rotella if I ever switched over.
