After watching Project Farms video I remembered 540 Rat does his own testing..

75. 5W30 Shell Rotella Gas Truck motor oil, synthetic, API SN Plus, GM dexos1-Gen 2 = 96,269 psi
This oil was tested Spring 2019.

As you can see, the new Shell Rotella Gas Truck oil provides MUCH HIGHER wear protection capability than the Shell Rotella T Diesel oils tested previously. This is further proof that Traditional Heavy Duty Diesel oil is NOT a good choice for High Performance gas engines.





For Reference from his blog

90,000 to 105,000 psi = OUTSTANDING wear protection
Over 105,000 psi = INCREDIBLE wear protection


If you arent happy with a Number 75 on the list kind of oil then take a look at

4. 5W30 Quaker State Ultimate Durability, dexos 1 – Gen 2, API SN “Plus”, synthetic (green bottle) = 133,125 psi



Do you want OUTSTANDING? or do you want INCREDIBLE in your engine?
