I have a Shell Rotella 15X40 story, this is just a story. Not Scientific. I was selling diesel to a contractor who was building a landfill. They had 8 or nine Quad-tracks pulling two dirt pans each, and other related equipment. They wanted Rotella 15X40 oil (what they had always used) They wanted a barrel every time I took them diesel(2500gal). We had 8 barrels in stock. Though this would be enough. We were mainly a Valvoline dealer, but handled all brands. Well we ran out of Shell. So I took them Valvoline AllFleet 15X40. After about 3 barrels of Valvoline, the foreman called and said no need to bring another one this time. Our oil use has been cut in less than half with the Valvoline. Shouldn't have let them try Valvoline, if we wanted to make more money selling them oil!

All Cummins engines comes from the plant with Valvoline Premium Blue in them now and that is the oil Cummins recommends. Cat now uses Mobil oil that is branded as Cat oil in all their equipment. Both companies used to swear by Rotella for years. Rotella is definitely not the oil it once was, that is for sure.

Which Rotella were you selling them? There are at least 3 or 4 different 15w40 Rotella oils.

Besides Rotella T, what are the other labels?
