I used the dino/T1 in my 96 and my 99 with no problems. On my 96, I used 20/50 and had no HLA noise

Yah what is up with that. I don't want my engine to be all loose and slutty. If synth does that then I will get dino. ****

Went to Wally-world today, the 1 gallon jugs of Rotella T 15w40 (dino) were $12.50. The 2.5 gallon/10 quart jug was $15! I bought two.

rotella T synth. looked good when it came out of my echo after 7.5k. Medium brown and still looked golden when on the walls of the oil catch. Anyone using this going to 10k between oil changes?
