Trying Shell Rotella T 10w-30 after Auto-Rx

I found the Rotella T 10w-30 at a great price. $22 for 12q or $45 for 6 gallons. $1.90 and they say this is synthetic??? I was told batch is definately SL too, whew. I liked the Rotella T 15w-40 that I have used, but the dino 40 weight I have been using for ARX is killing my mpg and robbing my mid-range power. At high revs it is very smooth though. I am trying to stay away from ester oils for at least 1 oci after ARX, but cooler weather will be coming... heck, at this price, I might use it for my rinsing phase too! For ARX, I went with Havoline 5w-30 + 1 10w-40 and I can hear every bearing and tick inside my engine. Hopfully the ARX will quiet it down. I am excited about the 10w-30 Rotella T. [Big Grin] Is it really the synthetic "T" for this price?

A 15w-40 Diesel oil hurting your gas mileage in a gasoline engine passenger car...say it ain't so ! [Razz] That 10w-30 oil is a dino http://www.shell-lubricants.com/products/pdf/RotellaTMG.pdf But Shell does have some blends never spoke about here at BITOG http://www.shell-lubricants.com/products/pdf/RotellaTSyntheticBlend.pdf

I got it today! I also had someone convert the PDF for me. 11.9 cSt?! Same as GC. [Big Grin] This sounds like a winner! I can't put it in for 1000 miles because of ARX, but I am psyched. [Cool] I wonder how cold it can crank? PP is -40f, same as 15w-40 though. [I dont know]
