I see a few guys liking this oil but I can only seem to find the t6 diesel .Ive been to a couple different wally worlds. There has to be a difference right?
That speaks volumes.I sent in a sample of T-6 with 7,000 miles on it to be analyzed. Results came back saying there's a good 2,000 miles left in it. O'Reilly's has it on sale for under $22 / gallon and if you get their emails, you can use one of the $5 coupons too. Not only is T-6 a great oil for my bike, its the cheapest JASO-MA rated synthetic I can buy.
This is pretty much what I do too with excellent results. I usually shoot for a 50/50 mix though. Price is right for 2 gallons for under $35.Actually I use 4 qts T 15-40 and 2 qts T6. My 04 holds 6 qts.
Holy crap is that a compliment?T-6 like most oils labeled synthetic is a group III highly refined crude oil. being diesel it has a better add pack as well as unneeded additives for diesels. being a 5-40 its great in colder weather but needs a lot of short lived viscosity index improvers. Vindex is smart using the 15-40 with it, even though not all group III "synthetic" its closer spread 15-40 vs 5-40 requires less viscosity index improvers. this does not apply to superior man made group IV + V real synthetics like Redline + Amsoil
They all have diesel on them.What is the reason for blending the 2? Id rather not play mad chemist if I do I'll probably just go with amsoil for ease of use. The only jug I could find had "diesel" on it.
