Rotella or Valvoline Blue

Anyone running or have used Valvoline Premium Blue? Just curious if it is any better or worth the extra change!? 14.99/gal compared to $11.99 for rotella.

Re: Rotella or Valvoline Blue

Walmart is the place to go, $12.50 for the Blue. I like it over Rotella.

Re: Rotella or Valvoline Blue

I like my rotella T6, seems to do a good job, have never tried out valvoline premium blue, but people swear by it....so just to recap, doing a valvoline premium blue oil change and adding Rev-X is the most expensive but best thing you could ever run in a 6.0 liter?

Re: Rotella or Valvoline Blue

I say either one is fine, but what do I know? I'm a 7.3 guy.....

I have a philosophy? Who knew. Ok, where's the beer?

Re: Rotella or Valvoline Blue

I ran Premium Blue Extreme Full Synthetic 5W40 for 70,000 miles. This includes up to -10 deg F. I haven't been able to find a better oil. I get a few cold start issues (a little white smoke and some loss of power until it warms up above 10 deg F). I'm trying to find an optimal combination to run in the winter. This last change I added a quart of BG DOC (Diesel Oil Conditioner). Seems good so far, but, I need to see how it performs at -10 F. We should get a dip in the next 2-3 weeks; I'll let you know.

Valvoline. My oil analysis with the Rotella synthetic showed it was shearing down quick.

Re: Rotella or Valvoline Blue

When I had my 7.3 I used to change my oil using Ramos/Chevron oil. Can I use that on my 6.0 or no?
