Just about time to change the oil and my preferred Rotella T6 5-40 is MIA, with no known date for it to get back in stock. I'd heard grumblings about this, but didn't really pay much attention untill it affected me (of course).

When I think of Rotella, I can't say I think of slow boats from China, but maybe I'm ignorant. Saw someone claim it's actually the plastic for the jugs that's in short supply...but anyway, what's the deal with Rotella?
