I have not had luck trying to buy the CJ-4 stuff online. Usually what arrives is CK-4.

If you find the old stuff, and you want the old stuff, but it when you see it. Farm stores will probably still have lots of the CJ-4.

AZ is overpriced on oils so it will sit there until the clearance

I agree. Their 5 gal pail of CJ-4 T6 is more per gallon that a single gallon. But it is CJ-4. But I am not going to pay extra.

Going with DELO CJ-4 for now.

Just remember that Shell has admitted they placed CK-4 oils into CJ-4 bottles during the transition period rather than to throw away all those containers.

There is no telling which API you have in the CJ-4 bottle without lab testing...if I understand this topic correctly.

Shell admitted doing this beginning in August 2016, in case you want to look at dates on bottles.

AZ near me had 2.5 gallon Rotella T5 old CJ4 jugs
For $15.00 each. Clearance I suppose.

Make sure you get your rebate for $12.50 per jug- max of 4.
