Anyone run Shell Rotella in their Hemi? What weight?

I was wondernig if any of you guys run that Shell Rotella oil in your 5.7 Hemi's. If so, what weight do you use?

Yes it's a diesel oil but it meets or beats all standards for most if not all gas engines as well. I run it or Delvac in most of my bikes. If I remember right it's available in other weights but most places only carry the ones you mention.
