    Any 0w-20 will do just fine on normal OCIs. The rest is almost always just marketing.

    don't, Rotella always had a very good reputation for being an superior oil but was geared towards Diesel engines but included certain weights that could be used in gasoline engines but not the generic 0w20,5w30 weights that most of us use, so it seems that Shell decided to make a line of gasoline engine specific oil to satisfy those that want to use Rotella, its just an FYI to people who wanted to use Rotella in their 0w20 or 5w30 required trucks because of its great rep as an oil.
