It was covered in a thread here just a week or two ago. It's getting pretty scarce. I'd recommend when you do find some to go ahead and stock up. I'd call your local Walmart and ask them when they are due to receive more and just make sure you're there that day if possible.

Yup, been going on for a while now. I'd you need it, find what you can and buy it.

Correct me if I'am wrong but why not contact an Ams-oil dealer, and run that? Or is it in low supply too?

Why is Shell T6 so popular?

Well, amsoil is $38/gallon (with preferred membership) whereas T6 could be had for $20/gallon.

We're seeing a shortage of Delvac 15W-40 here now too. I'm guessing this shortage is going across the board with all the good HD diesel oils.

The Mobil Delvac Extreme 15w-40 and Rotella T6 are both pretty scare around here right now. I went with the Mobil Delvac 1300 Super for this oil change. If I ever see one of the others in good stock, I may get several and stock up for at least a couple oil changes. Filters aren't in large quantities either, especially for the 2020+ L5P.

Nope, Amsoil is not in short supply here. Ordered it on Tuesday and was at my house on Thursday.

Delvac ESP 5w40 @ $51.99/2.5gal, take a $20 rebate off of that, pay $8.99 for a PF2232 and $1.50 off of that. End of problem.

Check out walmart app. Just looked and plenty of options with 1-3 day shipping. I use it to check stock too and was able to locate some 10qt jugs of T6.

I just had Walmart cancel my order for a 2.5 gallon jug after several days of delay, ordered last week.

My local Family Farm and Fleet says they have some, will go up there for a looksee in person.

That's the issue I kept hitting as well. Webpage says they have it, place order, nope!

I was able to find a 2.5 gallon of Rotella T6 15w40 for $69.99. I usually run 5w40 all year long for cold starts. I change oil every 5k but right now I am at 7k. I will send a sample to the lab to see how it checks out. I am curious how much oil life is left.
