Still looking...Fishingdude;1574892; said:I'm having a hard time finding 5w-40 dino oil any help would be great.

I'm not going to look anymore....John Armstrong;1575323; said:There is no 5W-40 dino oil for our trucks. 5W-40 is synthetic oil.
I don't believe that Shell could legally say that it is if it wasn't a true synthetic.Idle_Chatter;1579298; said:Shell Rotella T 5W40 is called "synthetic" but is actually a blended grade III dino oil base, so if you've got some kind of "synthophobia" you will be safe with the Rotella! It's also great oil, great for winter and fine for year-round use.
Shell actually uses dino based oil for the so called synthetic oil.Thankful;1579793; said:I don't believe that Shell could legally say that it is if it wasn't a true synthetic.
From the Shell Rotella web site:
Is SHELL ROTELLA Synthetic a real synthetic?
Yes! Shell ROTELLA T Synthetic SAE 5W-40 is made with synthetic base stocks that have been made through a process of chemical synthesis of feed material called isomerization.
