Need to find a replacement for Shell Rotella t6 for my 08 gl 1800 since it is not available and don't look like it will be anytime soon.

For 5th gen Wings, Honda's GN4 continues to be the best oil for them.

My local Wal*mart has Rotella T6 in stock for about $24 per gallon ---

Rotella T4 ~$15/gal; & T5 ~ $19/gal

All in stock and ready for pick up ..?

DELO Oil is another good choice also available
