Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

I want to do the GDE tune, just these repetitive PCM flashes that FCA keeps pushing out make me hesitant. Just hope the engine lasts with all this epa garbage on it until 100k, then it's "off road tune" time.

But probably come tax season I'll get the GDE anyways to ride out the last 70k

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

If you put on a gde tune, can you still pass emissions?

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

I've switched to Rotella T-6 about a week ago and I think I'm seeing an increase in emissions burden. Before switching over I've been scoring consistently 5% increase in DPF soot levels during my 15 mile daily drive. Since my change to T-6 my DPF soot level change went up 1% to 6%/15mile. I'm not sure whether those measurements are within a margin of error, but they are noticeable.

Good information to know. It seems like we have to figure out on our own what is actually best for our Ecodiesels over all. At FCA still all hush hush. I'm going to send in another sample to Blackstone with the 5w30 I currently have in my Jeep. I'm waiting for any Blackstone results from Forum users with Rotella T6.

Tough conclusion to pull from such a short drive. Too bad you don't have consistent averages over a longer drive to be sure there's a difference.

Did they drop the price from the Euro L price? They should have !
(But I doubt it !)

Thumbs down Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Typical stealership charged me $9.25 per quart for T-6. Euro L in Feb. was $9.00. Even worse is $63.00 for the oil filter. Time to go it elsewhere.

Did they give you complimentary KY with that purchase?
