Both can be purchased at Peb Boys.

Do any reviews, the Rotella Synthetic is just as good as higher brand oils, waaaay cheaper. I've been using it for years, in everything I own. Never an oil related failure. No metal shavings, I always get 45-47mpg, no clutch slip, engine temps the same, other oils made no difference, except in my wallet.

Hell, I'm an Amsoil dealer, Amsoil is amazing, just cost waaay more! R&D!!!!

I'm just trying to save everyone some $$, especially if you're someone who changes oil every 2K. I don't change till 4K, FTW!

Ive been advising peeps to use Rotella T and Purolator filters for several years now. Glad to see you're using it now...

Yea I hear ya Freddy, I think when I first met you guys I said something about using Rotella, and you had told me someting like "gotta worry about frothing" I dunno, thought you were knocking it....so I switched to Amsoil. LOL!

Not no mo! Back to my original plan....

If you can afford the room the PL14610 (3.5 in) is better than the PL14612 (2.5 in).

All the above are still $6
I use it cause I know it fits. I don't have enough patience to experiment.
