    I still haven’t seen a single analysis from someone using rotella,I’ve raced my car every season and get below average wear numbers using Amsoil. I’ve been using 1 qt 5w-50 and 3qts 5w-40, topping up with a 50/50 mix. Racing definitely puts the oil through its paces and I’m impressed to see the wear numbers that I’m getting.

    Out of curiosity, what's the logic behind that blend?

    I've tried it, then the recommended Penzoil Euro Platinum 5w40, and I prefer the Shell Rotella for my 2015 Abarth. I feel that the engine runs smoother/quieter with it (very noticeable when waiting a long time in drive-thru). Also had a similar experience with my old VW with the 1.8T engine. I used Mobil1 on it, but my oil pressure light would come on when stuck in heavy traffic. Switched to Shell Rotella and never had the oil pressure light come on again, so the Shell stuff can handle the extreme heat better. Plus, the Mobil1, Castrol, Pennzoil oils are not true synthetics unless you get the European formulations.


    I'm currently trying Lubri Moly 5W40, and while its better that the Pennzoil, I'm going back to Shell on my next oil change.
    My understanding is that the Pennzoil Euro Platinum oil is made by Shell. A knowledgeable acquaintance said he investigated and found that Shell Rotella 5W 40 synthetic and Pennzoil Euro Platinum 5W 40 are the same product.

    I race so your usage will be different and I test my oil so I saw the viscosity dropping to the high end of a 30 weight after 10.000kms so I saw 5w-50 which is a very thin 50 weight, higher Zn, P and a dab of moly and so far I’ve noticed the valve train after a day of ricing is quieter than ususl.

    That person is wrong, very wrong. Brotella has higher TBN, Zn and P for use in Diesel engines.

    I'm only one oil change deep into this car, but I will be sending out the Rotella T6 for testing in the fall. My car also see's race use.. I like the high zinc/phos for engine protection, the high phos is not good for the cat; in turn I'll have to change more often when running a diesel oil. There are plenty of UOAs for RT6 on turbo gassers out there that show excellent results.
    Amsoil is likely one of best brands out there in terms of holding up to heat cycles and visc, hard to compete with Rotella protection for price though but there are caveat's

    I’ll post up my UOAs when I get a chance this week. I’m excited to see the results of Brotella, it’s definitely the best value from what I’ve seen.

    When you say, "Change more often." are you talking miles? I change my oil every 5,000 miles and I've never run my cars hard.

    I mean more often than the recommended interval which I believe is 8K miles.. I change twice a year which typically works out to 5k miles
