Just got the results back today. Thought i'd pass on the info. In both images the CJ-4/SM in on the left, while the CK-4 is on the right.

Thanks for sharing. Rotella CK-4 still has phosphorus above 1000; Ford should be happy with that and add it to the approved list.

You're very welcome! I just love sharing the knowledge.

To help with any confusion this is the dedicated CK-4 analysis.

To a layman the old CJ4 looks so much better.

Thank you for the report.

I don't like it. Seems too weak imo.

The 15w40 ck-4 looks to be a much better oil for the money.

Oddly enough, the Shell Rotella products up here are available in 5 litre jugs, unlike most of the competition, which is either 4 litre or 4 quart jugs (aside from pails, drums, and so forth).
