As for the Rotella oil, ran that in a 2.0L gas VW that burned oil. Still, concerned it's a fuel economy diesel oil and formulated as such (I know it has a gas rating too!). Might switch once bumper-to-bumper warranty is up.
I've read enough UOA of Rotella T6 5w-40 ran in our boxer motors and they all have shown great and better results than other more expensive syn oil. The only one thats comparable would be the german castrol 0w-30, but its not as available like the T6 are. About the PureOne, I actually like the yellow non-slip grip.
