    Looking for input on Shell Rotella T Oil?

    I currently run Valvoline 10w-40 Motorcycle oil and it has been fine. I have searched a lot of posts about the Shell Rotella T and have not seen to many people that are running it. The ones that are have said good things about it. I need to change the oil in three supercharged seadoos and was thinking of going with the Shell Rotella T Diesel 15w-40 this time. Not only because of the price but also becuase I have heard nothing but good reviews on it in several types of applications, cars, motorcycles, atvs....... I know it has all of the classification ratings so it should work on the supercharged Seadoos. My friends and I have been running it in our Honda TRX450r quads for years and have had no problems. If anyone has some input, good or bad, I want to hear it. Thanks for the help

    The T6 is oil is great stuff but I'm the XPS Seadoo oil that is Full Synthetic in the yellow bottle. After warranty then maybe switch and test with Black Stone Labs to T6?

    Yes it is wet clutch certified also. Do you think the 15w-40 matters when the seadoo calls for 10w-40? Here is some good info also:

    I run it in my both my boats, current boat is a 30' with a volvo diesel, at about 1500 hrs seems to work fine. I know of at least 15 boats in my area running that or delo.


    That being said it is the wrong weight to start with, and has totally the wrong additives for your purposed purpose. Would be kinda like using it in my wife's mini van. Just use the right oil.
