Rotella Oil?

Ok, so i know some of you guys were/are using Rotella t-6 for your oil(07-660)....with the JASO_MA cert. are you liking it? has there been any issues?
I think Im going to go to it...its a full synthetic and Rotella always gets decent/high marks in the oil shoot outs....what do you guys think?

yes I know your all going to say "amsoil"....but I have to order that and I want something off the shelf that I can get anywhere and is still good

I know I'm a little late responding to this one but take it from a former mechanic and Detroit Diesel employee.............Rotella is junk! You can always tell an engine that has ran Rotella because it takes a week to wash the grime off your hands. At 500,000 miles there will be more sludge in the engine than if a Mobil, Valvoline or Delo oil was ran.

Obviously we aren't talking the same mileage and life span but if it doesn't hold up over time I wouldn't use it for the short term either.
