Just saw the commercial for the first time tonight: Rotella for gas engines. It comes in a red jug. They say it's for oil for gas trucks.

Looks like just another synthetic oil to me.

Is it an additive for oil?

Same here... My wife's Dexos requiring Buick is the only gas engine that doesn't have Rotella.

NO. It is "synthetic" oil.

While I don't know for sure, I suspect that there is little difference from T6, which is good for diesel, gas and even motorcycles.

I would NOT use this stuff in the red jug for a motorcycle without verifying the contents to be sure it is OK for wet clutches.
