Default Valvoline 5w40 syn or Rotella T 5w40 syn

ok i've got both of these availible here in alaska and was wondering if you guys had any good or bad input on these oils, i've also thought of using the MS15w50 but would rather stick with something in the 5w40 range up here.

thanks

Mike

Both are good oils, but the rotella has a good track record of uoa's. Use 0w30 german castrol if you can find it!

You are talking about the valvoline diesel oil I assume.
