Oil for Upcoming Winterzation
 
Yes I know it's early to start thinking about winterization but I just got a flyer from AutoZone on the new RotellaT6 oil. It's $8 off a gallon and $40 off 5 gallons. We tend to do multiple boats around here so the 5 gallons would tend to go quick.

Anyway the T6 Rotella is only offered in 5w40 and is full synthetic. I'm thinking of moving this direction but thought I would throw it out here and see what others think. Here's a clipping on the performance as related to our beloved 15w40 of the same make.....

Shell Rotella® T6 provides extra protection against breakdown by heat and offers up to 70% better oxidation resistance, compared to conventional Shell Rotella® T3 15W-40 API CJ-4 oil.

Here's the link to the site with more information about the product.....

With the discount the cost is about the same. Thoughts?

Should be ok for newer roller tappet motors if the weight is right. I was running in my 1995 - If you need ZDDP T6 has 1260/1147 zinc/phosphorous. The synthetic base stock of all synthetic oils gives you better temperature and oxidation protection.... not to start an oil discussion.

Not a bad choice for oil in any way IMO.
