The problem with diesel oils is no zinc after 2006. So newer diesel oils dont have zinc aditive. Gasoline car oils are better in that respect. Schaeffers still offers diesel oil for pre 2007 diesel engines and it has zinc in it. Ask your supplier if pre2007 diesel oil is still available.

Gary years ago I used to work for a trucking company that had Cat 3406 engines in all of there trucks. We used Rotella t 15-40 in all of them and changed it every 10 thousand miles. the engines would go a million miles with only having the rod and main bearings changed every 300 thousand. Might change a head gasket now and then and waterpumps and an injection pump other than that the oil always done its job. Why wouldnt you use that oil in your engines. I run it in everything that I own. Ive never torn a truck engine apart or anything that that was used in that was dirty or a mess inside.

Gary well it was 20 years ago when I worked for that trucking company. Where I work at now they use recycled oil in the engines we build. I know you lhave probably done your homework on engine oils like you do everything else that you build or design. But I dont believe rotella is a bad oil lots of engines are still running it today.
