If you are driving a diesel and use Shell Rotella T6 all I can say is Good Luck finding it and when you do, you’ll pay a Kings ransom for it. I’ve searched every big box and auto parts store in the county including the Love’s Travel Plaza and Zip Nada Zilch!

Quick search online reveals that this has been going on for at least the past week or two.

What happened? Plant burn down? Workers quit due to COVID BS? Is it BRANDON’S fault?

What’s the situation in your neck of the woods?

That’s 5w30 T6 which doesn’t meet the Ford spec for the 6.7 PS. The link OKCGene posted is to a current thread about the lack of T6 5w-40. Valvoline Premium Blue Extreme 5w-40 met the Ford spec before T6 did by about 2 years. It’s reported to be as good if not better than T6.

It will sometimes be available online at Sam’s Club. Just check often as it will sell out fast!
5W-40 - 3 gallons for about 59$

I see some around from time to time. I'll let you know if I see any (and where) as I'm running around.

Mobil delvac is better oil than the Rotella. Buy that instead. Saw plenty of it at Costco the other day.

Another comparison to read. It never mentions the recent Ford requirements

That article was written before the Ford spec existed as evidenced by the T6 in the article being listed as CJ and not CK. The Ford spec came about after CK spec oils became the standard.

Also, that article was written by a bottle reader and contains no substantive content. In other words, the author read the manufactures’ marketing materials, then wrote an article. I found this particular quote “Shell Rotella synthetic diesel oil can last up to 500,000 miles or 10 years if used properly.” interesting when the author was talking about the oil change intervals each oil offered.

trapper189 is correct! I bought the only 3 gallon jugs I could find within 25 miles of home. Hens teeth! And on sale too. Crazy.

Agreed. I would like to thank you for helping me learn and understand so much more about oil than I ever dreamed possible. The technology behind today's oils is amazing. Thanks to everyone else who contributed to that in this thread as well.
