Little help finding coolant in Houston

Looking for Cat EC-1.

Oreillys has Final Charge conentrate for $24 a gallon.
None at Autozone, Napa or Advanced Auto.

There's a Cat dealer in town. I think the price is around 28 bucks a gallon concentrate.

Plenty of truck stops and heavy equipment service shops way on the other side of town but don't know their names or what they carry. I don't really want to drive all over town looking for coolant.

Found the Zerex on Amazon 50/50 for $13.36. Seems like a good price but it's 50/50.

So the places that I could find that carries cat ec1 is pretty expensive unless that is the normal price for it. Any help on where to go and good price would be appreciated.

Found a Cummins dealer on the NE side of town. It was a dollar more for the Fleetcool. They also had the REstore and the Restore plus. I'm gonna do what you did hdfatboy and order the coolant from Oreillys. If I ever need more to mix it'll be easier to obtain through their multi locations than to drive clear across town. Oh yeah Grainger carries the Zerex but it's 34 bucks a gallon.
