I have been looking for this oil for some time now and haven't been able to find it yet. If anyone has seen it I would like to see a picture of the back of the bottle. Pictures please.
Thanks

Most places seem to have the T6 only in 5W40. Snagged 2 gal of the T6 5W40 CJ4 at Home Depot.
The rest of the shelf was CK4.

I think I have the next oil change for my truck covered now.

Yep, I have lots of T6 5W 40 CJ-4/SM for my other car but was looking into possibly switching, really want to see the back of the bottle.

Maybe Chris Guerrero can get you a picture. One of the province's distributors can get it to me if I order it, but that doesn't do you a lot of good right now.

+ 1 on this topic. It kind of peaked my interest wondering if it might be spec' A3

This oil seems to still be as rare as unicorn tears. There are no results on Google shopping. I wouldn't mind giving it a go if it were available somewhere. Maybe next year?

Check at a Shell distributor. I tracked it down that way, albeit not at my local distributor, which is a tad problematic. The pricing is pretty amazing, though.

Ammofirst: It won't be A3 (but will be similar in some respects) because it's E6, and the SA and phosphorus will be all out of whack in comparison to a typical A3/B4.

Are you suggesting that this will be a commercial fleet oil as opposed to a consumer oil? That seems more than plausible based upon what we now know.

No, I'm just suggesting that if we rely on retail outlets, sometimes we suffer. wink At least a Shell distributor should have direct access to the product, if not any in stock. It may take Shell some time to get ordinary retail outlets on board, particularly if there's a bit of a gap in understanding with retail personnel about certain products no longer being gasoline rated, and with this product, in specific, being gasoline rated.

Nice. It would be nice to see it at a few more retailers.

I have seen the T6 Diesel oil there, but never the T6 Multi-Vehicle formula.
Their website says to call to order though.

Now you're seeing why their stock is over $300 a share. I haven't bought anything from O'Really in over a year now.
