THe old CJ-4 Delvac 1300 had HTHS of 4.3, The CJ-4 Rotella T5 and T6 had HTHS 3.5. Delo and Rotella T Dino were both 3.7. not sure about the new stuff though.

Rotella T6 in my 7.3 and all my ATV's and mower/snowblower. It's easier to come by plus has the JASO certifications for wet clutch/shared engine and transmission use in my ATV's. I don't know of any other HDEO that has those certs.

I don't know about market share or fleet use but it seems like the five walmarts near me sell more rotella than all the other diesel oils combined.

If I had a need for a HDEO, I would run Delo. Seen some excellent UOAs with it here even being dual CK-4/SN. Better than other CJ/K-4s. I think too much stock is put in ppm numbers from a VOA.

Delo here currently.
Started using 15w30 SD in my 6.0, I have continued using it in my 6.7 .
But I've run them all, Mobil Delsmack, Valveater Premium Blue, Shell Rosmella, SuperTech, and even Harvest King.
In the conventional 15w40's there really is very little difference in wear rates and overall performance with any of them.

Typically I'll run the least expensive of any API approved HDEO I can find at the time. Might be a SOPUS product on a sales push, or Devlac on rebate, or Peak on a closeout, or ... whatever.
Right now my stash is VPB semi-syn 10w-30 because it was the cheapest at the time to stock up my shelf.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
