    You can't pigeon hole all Diesel spec'd oils into the same house. Rotella is a unique line of oils and the T6 is a very specific engineering spec as well on top of that.

    I'd check with the engineers at Shell on that point if I was concerned. Having a Wet Clutch certification is critical and it meets that. Its been used in Kingquad 700's for a good decade if not more to extreme mileage for an ATV. I am sure there are many other engines still humming nicely with it today. Some oils from obscure makers don't have them certified by SAE or other authorities and merely make claims which are baseless.

    Based on old online info. Diesel oils aren't compatible with gasoline engine Catalytic converter. We don't have them in our exhaust.
