Rotella changed formula so its not as good as it use to be. A lot of us here use motul. Every 3k is best but no later than 3500. The oil is not a big issue but the filters stop doing their job around 3500. Its best to change oil and filter before they quit.

I was using RP and switched to Motul, I noticed a big difference in how smooth the enigine felt. On cold start up the engine is not as noisy.

Nutella increases turbo lag, if you use Vegemite instead you'll net 10hp at the wheels
