Question Rotella T Triple 15W-40 Diesel oil?????

I'm wondering if I can use this oil in my honda's? It says JASO MA and JASO DH-2 on it...does that mean it can be used for wet clutches? I just want to make sure before I put some in the Rhino...wouldn't wanna wreck his new clutch! The main reason for using it would be cost. I can get it for $12.89 a gal for regular. Or $22.89 a gal for full synthetic. Which is CHEAP considering honda charges almost $7 a quart for GN-4.

Rotella T Triple 15W-40 Diesel oil?????

I was told not to use Rotella T in my tractor, I was told that it sludges? Have y'all heard this? I returned the Rotella and bought Castrol.

I have used Rotella in my tractors for several years and have never had a problem. I never had to break one down so I don't know if it sludges or not. I do know from breaking down an old Nissan V6 that the castrol runs as clean as a whistle. It had 364,000 miles and blew a head gasket. broke it down and it looked new inside. I had had it since 184,000 miles and I had always ran Castrol in it.

07 Rancher TE stock except for gun rack.

The synthetic isnt a good idea for tractors cause the tollerances inside, I just use rotella triple t 15w-40 in the gallon bottle.

Seafoam "In every tank"

Mobil1 4T 10w-40 (great stuff)

My dad ran castrol in everything he's owned since he was a teenager, and I do the same with my truck. And never had any problems with it. I used to run it in my 400ex, but I was having problems with the clutch getting hot. So I went to Amsoil.

I don't know anything about the Rotella T, there's probably no problem with it. But I might as well just continue buying castrol.
