Oil change- types and brands

Any tips on Honda friendly oil brands that are not the expensive Honda oil?

Shell Rotella oil. you can pick up a gallon of 15w40 oil for about $15. or you can pick up the rotella synthetic for about $22 a gallon. OR you can pick up the valvoline 4 stroke atv oil for about $4 to $5 a quart.

Is the shell rotella 15x40 you guys are talking about, the plain old diesel oil we use in our trucks.
