Oil Question

My Kohler 7000 says I can run stirght SAE 30 in it and I have seen people say they use Rotella-T in their crank, but when I Googled it I see its a diesel oil. Is that still ok to use?

Re: Oil Question

Rotella T is also rated for gas engines too I think.

Re: Oil Question

Rotella T last time I checked had changed formulas and no longer has a good zinc level. Will be switching to Valvoline VR1 30 wt.. yes it is an off road racing oil but still has zinc.
