    I'm not saying there's seven months we can't go in the water but it's with our schedule that we have to bring it in a bit early. It's a couple of hours up there so have to do it when we can.

    I don't want hot water! I want it clean, clear, and cool!

    Still don't understand this thread. Most guys change oil in the fall, not spring. Nice to get the contaminants out and fresh oil on the internals for storage. No special oil though.

    Scotty don't!

    The last several years I have found the lowest price for Rotella at Home Depot.

    People are scared there is going to be an oil shortage and are stocking up. My dad works with heavy equipment, and he was told by the oil distributors that they should order all the oil they need for the year (this was at the beginning of 2020).

    I wrote it off at the time, but then I went to go change the oil in my truck and had a hard time finding it.

    The oil shelves are Wal-Mart near me were pretty empty when I stopped by this weekend. Only 1 jug of 15W-40 left.

    The point was the once full shelves are very empty... regardless of which brand you choose.

    Haven't experienced that here in South Carolina so far. Always been available at Walmart. Hope that is not a sign of what may happen. Never know with this new administration if you know what I mean.
