I made the switch to Shell Rotella T6 (5W40) recently. Haven't had a UOA done with this yet, so I can't give an educated opinion.

Your nighttime volunteer of near-useless information.
Good news, everyone!
Damn I haven't even heard of rotella but Ima start looking that up thx for ur responses.
They sell it by the gallon at wally world. Just make sure you get the extra quart. You'll only use half of the little guy though.
If you look in the manual it says use 5w30 synthetic energy conserving.
The only criteria Rotella T6 fulfills is that it is a synthetic oil.
I haven't had any problems so far.
But understand before you use it that it does not meet the standards recommended by SOA if any issues were to arise.
I use the 5w30 Subaru synthetic. Haven't had any issues yet.

The box in red permits 5W-40, provided it meets the grade spec, and that's great news because some of the bet oils on the market are 5W-40s and they can be used year-round in almost any environment regularly inhabited by humans.
