Re: Rotella t5

I have the 10w-30 T5 in mine since August, so far so good. I will polly do a UOA in 2-3k miles to see how it is doing. From most reports I have read it seems like a good oil.

Re: Rotella t5

I am also running T-5 10-30 in my 01 this winter, seems to be doing very well. Starts a little better in the cold weather then 15-40. Seems to be pretty good bang for the buck. I would recommend it.

It started much smoother when I had it in my truck...
