ordered new filters and found out Napa now stocks a single weight oil 40 SAE that meets all the cfa requirements for our GMC motors no more scratching to find oil.

This was in Junction City Oregon

If you ask them they can order the Rotella 40 in gallons or barrels.   The closer you are to a large body of water to easier it is to get.   NAPA in Mobile, Al. has it on the shelf and at Charlotte, Michigan they get for me next day from Grand Rapids, Michigan.   I even ordered it at NAPA in Wachula, Fl.

My Greer, SC NAPA guy ussually has 4-6 gallons on hand, hey had to store it somewhere else because somebody would grab it thinking it was 15-40 that was right next to it and the computer would not order more because it showed it on hand. Wink

Also check O'Reily's, they are supposed to stock it. I asked our local store and they only had three gallons on the shelf, and could not get it the next day as the phone lines where down at the time, bad storm. I did find it at a local oil distributor, they had several pallets of Rotella and Chevron 40 wt. Guess where I'm going to get mine from now on, and this in little ole Abilene TX! The price was just a bit over 11 bucks a gallon. Our local NAPA didn't have it but could get it. Our little two stroke is very happy!

For anyone in (or near) Canada, Walmart stocks CF-2 SAE 40 in jugs and pails. That sure makes it easy to find up here.
