    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.
    You are bang on with that comment. Guys up here are buying cases of oil for sled season already as many stores were out of stock last winter.

    I just got the Pennzoil ultra platinum 5w-30 5 quart from Walmart for $25 shipped to the house. No stores had it in stock

    ive had pretty good luck getting my local napa to order stuff w/o charging any shipping as well. if they dont have it it comes on the truck later that day or the next morning from the warehouse.
    have had a couple cases where they ordered something for me and by the next afternoon id figured out that i didnt need that particular variant and they were fine with not charging me and just keeping it on the shelf.

    worth a shot if you have a napa nearby


    but man, i cant imagine any decent sized town not having some flavor of rotella in stock.

    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.

    I restore old engines you bring me one with a milkshake I fill it to the brim with kerosene. when I get to it I dump that and add oil. Works great.

    You sink a snowmobile I fill w kerosene again works great displaces water. Drain and fire up works great.
