Hello and any of you folks use the SUPER TECH 15W40? How would you say it compares to ROTELLA T 15W40? The VOA of the ST 15w40 looks kinda stout, maybe its just me. I know a friend that is a farmer that uses it in his John Deere's and one OLIVER high lift/tractor without issue.

Probably just fine. I've never seen it, but other ST oils seem alright. I'd personally use Rotella or Delo.

Yeah Chris142 I see it has a lot of boron in it and looks stout. I think reading back on here, your PETERBUILT you had the ST oil in it and never a problem. Wasn't your PETEERBUILT a 62' or 63' if I read correctly?

I can't believe I just said I'd never heard of it. Bad brain malfunction I suppose.

I use it in my Triumph Spitfire (OEM spec was 20w-50)

I've never read anything bad about it.

I'm not currently a user, but I think it's going to go in my old '91 Toyota 4Runner one of these days. I have 10w-40 Kendall in it now, and it seems to like a 40.

I have used ST 15w-40 and been pleased with it. Never seen a bad UOA from it. For any normal HDEO application, it will be as good as any other API cert'd product you could use.

Conventionals vs. Synthetics isn't about which is "better"; it's about which lasts longer, while assuring safe operation, in relation to cost. Any product can be over or under utilized. The same applies to filters.
Make an informed decision; first consider your operating conditions, next determine your maintenance plan, and then pick your lube and filter. Don't do it the other way around ...

I used it on my last change before going to 10w-30. It came out clear and clean after a 5k mile run. If I went back to 15w-40, I'd use it again no question. people get too hung up on the pretty labels and fancy names when really, it lubricates just as good as any other HDEO conventional. If it didn't, it wouldn't be on the shelf.

It's good stuff, particularly when changed at manufacturer's recommended change intervals.

Super Tech is made by Warren.

I believe Shell Rotella 15W-40 has a stronger additive package.

Is it worth a couple bucks more per gallon?

Only you can decide that.

I have used it a few times in my Cummins. Never had any issues with it.

Also, my family owns bulldozers, dump trucks, etc...(land clearing service), and they are starting to use it in some of the equipment. They have used Delo and Devlac for years, and I guess they are just wanting to try out something different.

Personally, I would run it any day of the week and not worry about a thing.

I noticed it at Walmart a few days ago and its about $10.XX for a jug. That makes for a $25 oil change in my E350. Not bad at all.

Just put ST 15w40 into my volvo so it'll get a work out. I will send in a VOA as soon as I can get to a post office, probably in a couple weeks.

By the way the PQIA test from last May was cj-4/sm rated. The oil I put in today was cj-4/sn rated. I'm interested to see what it looks like on the VOA.

The service writer at the truckstop was happy to give me a discount for bringing my own oil, but was absolutely disgusted with me when I told him I was trying the supertech.

By the way...anyone know how to decipher the date code on ST bottles? (it is stamped WPP on the bottom). Date code: w34459------13323-----22:32 ( without the dash marks in between)

Also worth noting is not only is ST 15w40 now API SN but also meets volvo, mack, detroit, cat and cummins latest standards. Maybe I'm just way behind, but until this past weekend I had not seen any bottles saying it met those manufacturer standards.

That was good enough for me to try it.
