I have been running Rotella synthetic 5-40 for years and love it. I dont run anything else. All year from winter temps where I live that get well below 0* to summer months taking trips to Lake Havasu. It works really well. I get it at Walmart for about $16/gallon.

According to what I've read and learned about Rimula, it's Texaco Ursa oil. When Shell bought out Texaco it renamed the oil Rimula. And it was always my understanding that it was a little better formulation than Rotella T.
We carry Rimula at our place, me and my dad run the 10W-30 in our trucks every winter. Trucks seem to start better in the cold mornings with the thinner oil.
I've never seen any tests done on it so I don't actually know how well it performs, but I've never had any issues with.
Try Schaeffer's series 9000 5W-40. Excellent cold weather operation and excellent used oil analysis results. www.schaefferoil.com
