What happened to Rotella T6? Where did it go?

It's time for my annual maintenance on my Cummins ISL and Generator. I went to buy 7 gallons of Rotella T6 and I normally buy it off of Amazon...but nothing in stock. Stopped by Walmart, nothing in stock. Nothing in stock at Walmart.com. I have heard its been out of stock since last November. What happened? Why can't I find Rotella? Where are you buying it?

I found some at Advance Discount, but it's $10 more a gallon that Walmart.

Itís the same story on T4 also.

The Interweb says the required additives are sitting on a boat offshore waiting to be unloaded.

You might try expanding the search area. The location 10 miles from me was out of stock. Raising the area to 50 milesÖ I showed in stock in Plainfield, IL. 935 miles away) Called the store and verified. They do have it.

Yeah , finding the Rotella has been iffy for many months. I found 1 jug of T6 2.5 gallon last week. I need a few more quarts to change my truck oil in March.

Havenít seen it where I am in SW Florida either. The entire diesel oil shelf was bare on my last trip to Walmart.

I still use the T4 in all my vehicles. Found some a week ago at Samís and yesterday picked up 2 gallons at Auto Zone.

I think I may switch over to Valvoline Premium Blue because most auto supply stores have a good supply. Cummins actually recommends Valvoline for the oil of choice for their engines.
