Well it's not well realized but Walmarts around the country vary quite a bit as to what they stock in store, and sell, they are no where near the same. They are stocked based on local market factors and competition. When I had my house in Ruskin Fla., the local Walmarts was stocked with merch we would and will never see in a NJ Walmart. Here in Jersey, Walmarts are about 50% grocery stores. The demographs are a lot different than say, for example, Ruskin Fl.

A check on line indicates Rotella T4 is not available in Walmart stores anywhere near me. Same with Advanced Auto Parts. Places like Tractor Supply have only very recently moved into NJ. The cost of real estate and doing business as well as regulation in NJ keeps many great retailers the rest of the country take for granted from not operating here.

I believe Gary lives out near one of the few Tractor Supplies in the state. If the traffic is good it's about an hour for me each way, if bad over an hour and a half. But I live at the shore here in Jersey and I go to the local boat yard, Yanmar Dealer, for oil. Life in suburbia can be tough for those who do their own wrench work/fabrication and need supplies. We have more Bed, Bath and Beyond's, than hardware stores (if you don't count Home Depot and Lowe's, which are stocked similarly to Walmart).

Check out the gloves at Tractor Supply.
The deer skin fit so good I can get the card out and fill up without taking them off.

So if That is true , then we can start our own Rotella black market $$ supplying our members in lower 48 & Canada and the rest will need to do their homework to find an equal quality oil !

For anyone that has a WalMart nearby that does not stock Rotella, try ordering it on-line for in store pick-up.

I picked up some oil yesterday at Wally World and got Valvoline Heavy Duty Diesel 15W-40. †I called and asked about the ZDDP level in it and was told it was 1270 ppm.
T-4 was priced at $13.97/gal and the Valvoline was only $11.97/gal.

Lancer:  Find out if it is safe for wet clutches before you use it - make sure there aren't friction modifiers in it.

As I read through all these posts on ZDDP, PPM, yadda yadda. I still cannot come to a clear decision or answer as to which oil I should be putting in my Ď08 Savage. Sheís thirsty and she just wants a drink you guys.... I live in Canada, Vancouver Island to be exact. Iíve seen Rotella T6 in my local Lordco & Walmart retail stores. Could someone PLEASE give me a no BS straight shot answer as to which exact oil to use, and if I should use a certain additive. Exact brand and specifications (5W-40/10W-40/15W-40)?!?!? Please and thanks! Iím a complete newb at all this but, controversy aside.. Someone for the love of god tell me what to put in my bike haha

The current formula for Rotella T4 (15W-40) and the Rotella T6 (5W40) are both good oils, and the current 1,200 ppm of ZDDP don't require the use of any booster.

I use the Rotella oil......depends on my mood which one I use.
