Anyone call or email Shell and ask them when we can expect to find T6 back on the shelf? Used to buy at Menards or Fleet Farm now(for months) empty shelf where it once used to sit.

I use Rotella T5 in my XJ and always bought it at Farm & Fleet. None to be found last oil change.
I picked up the last gallon on the shelf at Wally World, luckily i still had a half gallon left over from the last oil change.

Looked up Rotella's website and signed up for an email notice where and when its available.
That was months ago and haven't heard since.

My wife was able to pick up 2 gallons for my truck a couple of weeks ago. If you can't find any T6 but you want an oil that meets the Mopar spec then you can look for Valvoline Premium Blue 5w-40. If you don't care about the Mopar spec then any 5w-40 API CK-4/ACEA E9 diesel oil will be just fine. You don't have to use T6.

Menards and Home Depot have had it back in stock.
Checked my local Menards a couple weeks ago and no Rotella in any T# or weight.
Never knew Home Depot stocks engine oil, gonna check them out next time i visit their store.

I got mine at Home Depot, along with 5 gallons of DEF .,
What area is the engine oil at?
My guess would be in the garden section which i seldom visit?

Thing is when i've gone into Home Dept its usually on a mission going straight to the lumber, hardware or plumbing departments buy what i need and then get out fast. Its about an hour+ drive one way to my nearest Home Depot.

It's in the "Tools & Hardware" section.

A FYI update.
Needed to pickup some sandpaper and grass seed at Menards yesterday so also checked out the Rotella shelf.
Holy crapola!o_O
Rotella was well stocked in all the flavors, T4,T5 and T6 in various weights including T6 5W40.
(For my XJ 4.0 i use T5 15W40 Summer and 10W30 Winter with WIX filters.)

On the way back home made a quick stop at Wally World where they had only one lonely gallon of Rotella sitting on the shelf.
Go figure.

I just got (2) gallon containers at WalMart this week. My son picked up some for his truck at Tractor Supply in the larger 2.5 gallon containers a few weeks ago.

www.walmart.com/ip/Shell-Rotella-T6-Full-Synthetic-5W-40-Diesel-Engine-Oil-1-Gallon/102646780
