I'm planning on switching to the Rotella 5w-40 FS for my next change. Heard a lot of good thing, not to mention the price

I started using the 15-40 this year. My friend gave me a couple gallons because he was switching over to synthetic. I heard a lot of good things about Rotella so I thought I would give it a try. No complaints so far, and you can't beat the price.

The 15w40 is a mineral oil, NOT the synthetic that gets good reviews.
Blue bottle Rotella=good synthetic
White bottle=average diesel mineral oil

In Canuckistan look for Esso XD-3 @ Wal-mart. $23 for a full synthetic PAO IV, best deal going on oil north of the border.
