    Keller Heartt 15w40

    I have been looking to buy diesel oil in bulk recently. I have always used the shell rotella t4 stuff from walmart but this seems to have a decent price per unit. Anyone have any opinion on it? https://www.amazon.com/TRUEGARD-15W-...N4TASDPGHSC708

    What are you using it in? Have you checked all the specs to make sure it meets manufacturer specs beyond the CJ4 classification? My 2017 Ram specs ROTELLA T6 FULL SYNTHETIC 5W40, meeting whatever the MOPAR spec is in addition to the CJ/CK4, and they're pretty picky about it and will sample the oil if there's an engine failure. I'm sticking to their requirements and MOPAR filters until the warranty is up.
    I've never heard of the brand & There doesn't appear to be any specs or information on the drum itself. It's priced like a high quality oil but ...........................

    I'm looking to use it in my 310J, Takeuchi TL10, and the dump truck. Spec for the backhoe is as follows:
    John Deere Plus-50™ II oil is preferred.
    John Deere Plus-50 is also recommended.
    Other oils may be used if they meet one or more of the
    following:
    • John Deere Torq-Gard™
    • API Service Category CJ-4
    • API Service Category CI-4 PLUS
    • API Service Category CI-4
    • API Service Category CH-4
    • ACEA Oil Sequence E9
    • ACEA Oil Sequence E7
    • ACEA Oil Sequence E6
    • ACEA Oil Sequence E5
    • ACEA Oil Sequence E4
    • ACEA Oil Sequence E3

    The oil on amazon says it is API CJ-4 approved, so it seems there would be no conflict there. I was reading something about the keller heartt stuff being a mineral oil.

    Yes, it says it's a mineral oil.

    Any time I can't find reference to an oil on Bob is the Oil Guy I tend to be skeptical. The specs are published here:
