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 RotellaŽ T6 provides extra protection against breakdown by heat and offers up to 70% better oxidation resistance, compared to conventional Shell RotellaŽ 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?
