looking for coolant after water pump replacement

Got an 03 6.0 that just got a new water pump. Does anyone near columbus Ohio know where I can get some rotella elc?? I can get some cat elc from a local cat dealer, but they want almost 30 bucks a gallon. Just looking for other options.

I bought some ford gold, but that crap's getting returned to the dealer. Im scared to even have jugs of that in my possession.

I had a hard time finding concentrate around here, they had premix everywhere. Apparently the shops that work on diesels never use concentrate? After a water flush on our trucks you need concentrate to get the right concentration, then you can top with premix later if you need to.
