Have you guys noticed motor oil shortages? I normally have 2-3 oil changes on hand but recently picked up a 6.7 and per the manual it calls for 5-40 and I can't find any locally? I have 15 or so gallons of the 5/30 for my other diesels. I normally pick up the oil at farm stores. I don't have any truck stops near by. Any suggestions? Thanks, GD

Yes. You and many have seen this and its talk all around Forums and youtube. The last three trucks I did I had to get Mobil 1 5w40 at $7.99 a qt. I usually get the Valvoline 5w40 for $18.99 a gallon. Times are not good. My Napa owner said they've been waiting months for a Shell order.

I just scored 3 gallons on Shell Rotella T6 15W-40 this morning at my local Wal-Mart. Last 3 on the shelf. No other diesel oil available. Crazy.

Can't find Rotella T6 5W-40 anywhere locally, but I can get it on Amazon for $210 for 3-gal. Crazy

I just checked Walmart and the oil that I purchased in January for $23.95/gallon on Rotella T6 15W-40 is now $59.50! If you can get it. I've got 2 of the needed 3 gallons.

Right now you can buy 5w40 Amsoil for just over $31 gallon, not sure why anyone would pay $59.50 for a gallon of Rotella T6

Last month that's what I did. A case of 2 - 2.5 gallon and a 1 gallon jug of 5w40 Syn. for $173 to my door. That's $86.50 per oil change of 3 gallons. Mopar filters I get from Walmart or Amazon.
