Default Rotella

One comment on Rotella, I used Rotella 15/40 in my Dodge Diesel for 100,000 miles. When I had the valves adjusted by a top-notch diesel shop here, the owner showed me the valve train. It was covered in sludge. He said this is common for Rotella and advised a switch to Valvoline Premium Blue. I did that about 30k ago. Runnin good. T
