my papaw has always run rotella in all his ford diesel trucks on the farm and i have used it in both my trucks. An early 99 F250 and the truck in my sig. I was at advance auto this weekend and needed an oil change so i was looking at the diesel oil and saw some valvoline premium blue 15w-40 oil that said it was recommended by cummins. i thought what the heck so i bought 4 gallons of it and changed it saturday. i was just wondering if any of you guys have tried it yet.
