Hello Everybody,

Question, good friend of mine owns an 08 Acura TL with a 3.2L and 109,xxx miles on it. Manual calls for 5W20 oil, would he be fine running this new Rotella oil in this car with his mileage?

His Family has always used SOPUS products. He wants to try something new and is interested in this specific product from Rotella.

It would do OK, other than a miniscule MPG loss. Not sure it's necessary, though (cue the thick vs. thin oil war!).

Have him make sure it's the new Multi-vehicle formula as stated on the bottles. The old version that only said T6 is now diesel only...

My only gripe with this oil is it comes in gallon jugs, and not 5 quart jugs.

The audience is obviously still the diesel crowd.

It won't hurt it's still geared more towards diesels so it's going to have extra detergent in it

If it were me, I'd have no problems running it. As it stands, I am running it. We're lucky enough to get 5 L jugs up here.
