Where do you buy synthetic oil?

I need to change mine, don't want to drive to each store looking for synthetic oil for diesels. I have mobil's synthetic for diesels now. What do you guys here use, where do you buy?

BTW, what's with the CF oil I found, is it that old?

Hey, got lucky, cruised to Schucks, had Rotella Synthetic for 21$ per gallon. I want to get one of those quick release drain plugs, but can't get over that feeling that anyone could just open it, and if you don't notice and drive off

WOW!

Sorry I missed your question. This sub-forum is usually dead.

Shucks is pretty decent as you found out. As long as you know what you are looking for.

Also look at Power and transmission on Van horn road. (accross from the local Dodge dealer). They are a Baldwin dealer and carry filters and such for our trucks. Aslo if they order a new filter for you they will stock it in the future so there isn't usually a wait the 2nd time.

BTW- Feel free to PM me if you need an answer on where to get whatever.

Thanks, I might give that other place a try.

As much as I hate to support Wally World, one of our customers brought his truck in for service Friday, and brought 3 gallons of the Rotella Synthetic that he bought on sale at Wally's for $17.00 or less per gallon.
