That site doesn't work for me, but you gave me the necessary info to generate the direct link. Thanks... I didn't expect them to skip the 3rd through whatever edition, and the site kept giving me the 2nd edition as the download.

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

I had the Rotella dumped in on Friday, along with the Mahle Filter from Amazon. The Rotella currently has a $5/gallon rebate going on throughout the end of July, and with big box-mart have lowered their prices on oil to $19.86/gallon I was able to procure the 2 gallons of oil for less than $30(after rebate) + $11 for the Mahle filter. The dealer was able to confirm through their dealer 1 connect that FCA had indeed updated and approved the oil.

Hey brother, can you let us know if there are any changes with the 5W-40 oil. I'm referring to it runs even quieter, better fuel economy and any other changes that you notice, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm curious about the fuel economy too since it's a higher viscosity

I would be happy to! - I tanked up and on Friday at Costco, and will be towing a 4200# trailer this coming Friday. As of yet I've seen no gain or loss, but I swear it is quieter(when the engine is @ temp). 66500 miles currently, my previous fuel economy average was a consistent 26.7 combined.

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Good info. Rotella is what I'll buy after I get all my free ones at dealer....they're probably already using something similar...

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Is the Rotella T6 MS-10902 Approved? I couldn't find it on either the product label or the official brochures.

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Will the OEM filter be the same as before?

Although it is not found on the label of the bottles(a change that will be implemented over many months) the Rotella 5W40 T6 Full synthetic is approved by FCA for use in the EcoDiesel.
