I use this in my Kawasaki Ninja 650r. Very popular with the sport bike crowd.Great value after rebate.

Coupons usually don't work on oil so if you want this deal I would act fast.

No rebate from at Shell web site

I bought 2 of them and added this filler then used code ES123 for $20 off $50.

rebate is good for two jugs and dont forget DISCOVER

Lotus recommends 5W40 for the Elise/Exige and the "truck" formulas have added zinc and additives that isn't allowed in "car" formulations due toEPA regs. Thanks!

This is SO true.
So I'm in for 4. I still have 4-6 filters left from Purculator Gold deal last year...Now, I'm set for the year! YAY

awesome deal, use this oil in My Libery CRD (Diesel)

Great deal!!!

perfect for the 5cyl turbo Volvos, they love it!

The only issue with Rotella is that these are the 4 quart jugs, whereas most everyone else goes with the 5 quart.

My automobile uses Rotella 15w 40w, Would it ruin the engine if I use this 5w 40w?
Thanks in advance.

Use this in my 671 detroit Diesel. Have a little over two million miles on it.

Nope, the first number is starting viscosity.

It's 5W-40 or 15W-40

There is not W after the second number as the W stands for "Winter"

Just picked up a gallon for the VW oil change...thanx OP

"W" does Not stand for Winter. Common urban legend.

no rebate from shell

What do you beleive it stands for?

Caught my eye...but after checking...I use the regular Rotella Triple...WalMart has for $13 everyday.

I would guess that W=Weight

Just checked on several websites. W stands for winter.

for those not near Advance Auto Parts, Oreilly has Rotella T6 for $20 again, so $15 AR per gallon.

Keep checking....................w=weight

gbfromtenn said:   Keep checking....................w=weight

We have a winner!

Long description would entail reading (for hours) on Bob the Oil Guy. Several oil nuts there and found it very interesting. . . Short description, which maybe be not totally accurate is the 5 W 40 means 5 weight oil at start up and performs like 40 weight oil at engine operating temperature. Nothing to do with winter and the letter w. (BTW I too thought it meant winter, because some shade tree mechanic told me so . . ) Most 5w40 have additives that help the "5" weight oil perform like "40" weight. Once again check with the tribologists for more an accurate answer.

did not see where it says you can buy 2.

I have never heard of the "winter" one before. That's pretty funny. Its always been "weight" with my auto shop teachers and mechanics. Guess I have been running 30 "winter" oil in my lawn tractor.

This is a decent deal but just remember its for only 4 qts

I would love to see the topic that stated "W" stands for weight on BITOG. Actually, any articles that note the "W" as weight for the cold rating of a multi-grade oil.

Technically the "W" has no specific meaning as it's an abbreviation for cold temperature rating. Even if the "W" did not stand for Winter, it's a good way for people that are not oil gurus to remember that the "W" is the cold rating for the muti-grade oil.

0W, 5W, 10W and so forth is categorized as the viscosity index of the oil at a cold temperature. A DIFFERENT rating system then one for the hot test.
20, 30, 40 and so forth is categorize as the viscosity index of oil at hot temperatures.

Thus, you couldnt call 5W-30, 5W-30W, because the "W" denotes the cold temperature rating. NOT weight...

Here is a BITOG topic that kinda touches base on this:

Code ES123 does not seem to work for me. My cart says that discount is applied, but no $20 off.
How did you get this to work?

Yea most codes have a limit to them. The % off seem to work more than once. Not sure if thats still true but the 30% and 20% have worked more than once in the past.

(sigh)

SAE established oil grading. I think they know what "W" stands for....

After reading through that article what do you think the SAE considers W?

brotherhpj said:   rebate is good for two jugs and dont forget DISCOVER


Carweful with this. The main page says limit 2 but after you fill the rebate out it then says 1.

I bought 2 and registered 2 rebates. 1 I uploaded the other I mailed in. I also sent the main page that said 2 in with the mail in part and highlighted the differance.

keaton85 said:   After reading through that article what do you think the SAE considers W?

The first number is the grade designation of the oil when it is at zero degrees Fahrenheit. Yes, it is the WINTER W grade designation.

The second number is the grade at normal engine operating temperature (Over 180F). It's that simple.

I asked my uncle who has been a Diesel master mechanic for 40 years.

Just picked up 2 bottles with the ES123 coupon worked great.

According to valvoline W stands for winter.

Just got off the phone with the rebate people and the rebate is good for only one per household. Back to AAP to return the whole order! Now it looks like the coupon is not working with the oil which we all knew was coming. Kind of a messy deal but thanks OP!!
