Question on Rotella Oil.

Ok well im about due for an oil change on my Subie and was wondering what version of Rotella do people use, as im thinking of trying it out as oil on base is cheap and also in limited supply right now do to a shortage. any input would be great and my baby has about 144k on her if that will help any.

T6 in the blue jug is what most subie owners that use rotella use.

Rotella T6 is most popular, because it's synthetic. I like this one in 15W-40 for the summer, as it's cheaper - especially in bulk like this - and good enough for the rigors of track days. Rotella's a HD diesel oil, so it's good for turbos.



You can get Subaru OEM filters by the case too. They seem to be the favorite and have a great reputation for quality.
