Just bought some Rotella T ...  but noticed it says "T4". Is this different than the "T" I've (we've) bought for years?

T4 is the "dino" version, T6 is the synthetic.  There's been some discussion of late about formulas changing, but I use both (4 in my T and 6 in my Nomad) and have found they still carry the MC certs on the labels.

Yeah.  They replaced the "T" with the "T4".  I'm not sure what the difference is, but it is still safe to use with our clutches.

I have been using T5 15w40, which is labeled as a dino/syn blend.

Thanks for the responses. Hoped I was good but you folks confirmed that! Time for the annual 7-10 day ride.
