Evidence would suggest that Rotella is a sludge maker just like Pennsoil used to be (and maybe still is) in a gasoline engine.

The are better oils out there than Rotella!

Shell Rotella T 15w40 and Delo 400 15w40 are the finest off the shelf oils today...these companies stay on the cutting edge. Ive been buiding diesel engines since 1970.Neither of these oils build sludge.Any oil will lose its additives thru the crankcase vent when run past their service limit.

The 'evidence' usually turns out to be studies conducted by the competition.

I disagree! The evidence is in engines opened up for one reason or another.

I have been using Rotella exclusively in all my diesels for as long as I can remember. I know several contractors and truckers who have been running it for millions of miles too in on and off highway diesels. There is always something better, but I haven't seen the sludging problems that are reported. Rotella is a common product around here, it's in every farm, car and truck store, and until this post today I had never heard that it wasn't a good product.

that's why i asked.. I hadn't heard anything about it either.

in fact.. the last time I heard about a truly 'bad' oil was quaker state.. adn that was decades ago.

I run walmart or tractor supply oil in my tractors mainly. a couple get different oils ( motorcraft, and 1 is on syn, as are my trucks.. etc.. )
