Rotilla ttt comercial oik

Anyone hear anything about this oil?
A friend of mine says it is the best oil to use.
Thoughts on the issue appreciated.
Thanks
Steve

I think you mean Rotella T3 oil (in the blue jug)
designed for diesels it exceeds all requirements for our motorcycle engines and at 1/2 the cost.

I have used it for the past decade, but be aware that on an old engine it will clean out the insides like new clearing the gunk off of the old seals and since it flows so well at all temps it will then discover the old seals that only sealed before due to the build up of gunk.
On a nice newer engine there is nothing better in my opinion, it also makes our 'clunky' transmissions work almost like a sport bike.

I've used the Rotella T 15-40 for the past 3 years now, first on my GL1100 and this year on the GL1500 with good results. It is regular oil, not synthetic. On one of the other GL sites, Naked Goldwings, it was highly recommended for the older wings and it seems to work fine for the 1500 as well. I changed it at 3k on the 1100 but use 5k as my guideline for the 1500. I think Delo seems to be popular with the 1500 and 1800 owners on this site.

I used the T5 and then T6 Syn. 5W-40 for 70K in The Beast (1800) with very good service. After reviewing the DELO 400 properties (15W-40) having slightly less friction, I changed. Maybe the mpg improved, but did not have any ill affects. Very happy with both.

However, I have switched my van (276K) over to the DELO and have found good performance, maybe just a tad better mpg, no worse.https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/...cons/claps.gif

I use the regular Rotella 15W40 as well as Valvoline MC oil. Can't tell any difference so back to Rotella from WalMart
