    Warning - the container leaks if they fall over in your car! No secondary seal under cap. Only 4 quarts, not the 5-quarts sold by most brands

      Comments about Shell Rotella T Triple Protection 10W-30 Heavy Duty Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

      Swapped to this oil for my high milage inline 6 gas engine and the result was a quiter idle and clean oil at 6k oil change. From the research I've done the zinc in the this oil is beneficial to the flat tappets in the 4.0 I6 Jeep engines. In my own experience, I had been running conventional oil and changing at 3-4k. The oil would be black at oil change. Not with this Rotella oil. At 3k, it still looked like honey on the stick, so i ran it another 3k. Save yourself money and use this oil. You will be impressed.

          I use this oil for my 2000 Cherokee. It's perfect for the 4.0. Cleans well and I notice it runs smoother with this oil vs others. I've been around the block when it comes to oils in Jeeps and I trust Rotella the best. Can't go wrong with it.

              Comments about Shell Rotella T Triple Protection 10W-30 Heavy Duty Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

              Been using Rotella oils in my Diesel cars/trucks, and my gasoline pick-up for years with hundreds of thousands of miles (no oil-related issues). I've been using Rotella in my wet-clutch bikes for just as long, and it holds up very well to the heat and abuse dished out in motorcycle and ATV engines. Since they now offer weights for my cars, I've almost entirely switched them to Rotella too... and its cheaper than any other conventional or synthetic oils on the market... even house-brands from parts-houses and retail stores.

                Use in my old Cadillac(V8) engine. More anti wears additive than conventional oil. Only downside is you will lose 1 to 2 mpg but, its worth it as a cost preventive measure.

                I mix this Shell Rotella, 10W-30, Triple Protection, Conventional Diesel oil with Formula Shell Conventional and Formula Shell Full Synthetic in a mix for year round use in my SUV. Although it is technically a HDEO Diesel oil, it is safe to use with all gasoline engines rated SM and below. I like this oil in a mix for its very strong add pack and increased durability and cleaning abilities. This oil, when mixed, will keep your engine clean and running very smoothly.
