Other uses for Rotella T6 oil
« on: May 01, 2018, 03:36:02 PM »
This was a weird one for me.
Being a subaru guy, I have absolutely no idea that deasel oil could be used in a non-subaru.

And yet... there you have it.

Looks photoshopped to me. I don't believe you.

Oh, it's time for this quote again.

Quote from: My friend Tom, a diesel mechanic
I’ve used Rotella as cooking oil. Fresh engine oil that hasn’t been inside an engine is not really toxic or harmful aside from a tendency to give you diarrhea in large doses (250ml+), nausea in extreme cases (>1L). Not to say that was in any way a good idea but in a pinch it worked and hasn’t affected my health.

(I was camping, cooking with a cast skillet and spilled the container of vegetable oil I had brought. I had already read the MSDS and knew what I was doing and I totally didn’t want to have to reseason the skillet. It actually didn’t even taste bad)

Mind blown!

My father in law is a 2nd gen farmer. When I told him I used diesel oil in my old Subaru, he was pretty surprised to say the least.

Saw a post in a Z/G group that some guy uses Rotella in his 350Z with good results. Guess I'm not done using this stuff lol.
