bobby asked i have a volkswagon truck 1981 with a1.9 diesel . non turbo what is best oil to use.?
I have a Yanmar 1cyl. diesel in my sailboat and it is recommended from Yanmar to use Rotella. It's all I use and change my oil once a year. I am very happy with it. I also work for a Municipality DPW and they use Rotella in their Diesel trucks. I use 5W-30 but that is for limited use in a sailboat, you may want to go with a thicker viscosity.
Frankly, I don't know. I use Rotella T1 SAE 40 straight weight oil as replacement oil for a demolition hammer as this is the oil that was recommended.I would recommend that the shopper ask the question on the forum, bob is the oil guy dot com.
I'm looking to use this in back-up diesel generators at an automotive plant?
HiIt works real well in my 1950, 1961, and 1965 BMW motorcycles.Jack
Rotella T1 works great in my 8.1 liter g
Doesn't use a drop of oil between oil changes.
