Thumbs up Rotella Ultra ELC. FOUND!!!

So in getting all my stuff together to do a coolant flush, EGR delete, and few other mods at once to my "New To Me '04 F350 CC", I began researching ELC coolant types. Based on my amateur research I came to the conclusion that Rotella Ultra ELC is some of the best stuff out there.

Began looking all over the web and could not find the stuff anywhere! Was about to pull the trigger on some Cat ELC, when I stumbled across this ...

Rotella Ultra ELC Antifreeze-Coolant Concentrate

Pricey ... but I'm happy to have found it. So if you or anyone else is looking for the stuff, there you go.

Actually they have this stuff stocked pretty good at most of the big name brand truck stops such as Pilot, Flying J, Loves, etc... Its a bear though if you don't live close to one. Some heavy industrial equipment repair shops have it in stock to or at truck repair shops. You just gotta look around for it.

Thanks. That's good to know, but unfortunately none are within a reasonable distance from me. Plus, I work a lot so the web is my primary point of purchases.

I went to 12 different truck stops in my area and none of them had the concentrate, only the 50/50 mix.

Finally got some Final Charge at O'Rileys. but, one store sai "I've never heard of that stuff, are you sure that it's real" I made a 180 and quickly left his O'Rileys. Went to the one next town over and he said of course we have that. Gave me the 2 gallons he had and said " I will order a case and it will be in by 11am tomorrow, just stop back by".
I guess some people just dont have a clue.

That price seems about right. Mine was $25 a gallon

Correction it may not have been the concentrate. I will look more closely when I head back out for two weeks on Monday. But for those who do have the time try the local heavy equipment dealers or the truck repair shops. At least the ones here in Delaware usually have a couple of gallons on hand at any giving time.

Thank you for this thread! I have searched high and low and can't find Rotella Ultra ELC anywhere near me, and I live in DFW! I get the strangest responses when I ask for it. Either they never heard of it, only carry the 50/50 mix, etc. The guy at the local Autozone said "Antifreeze is antifreeze. Always has been."

Geez.

What dealership are you referring to? Anything close to Mansfield or Grapevine? I need another bottle or two.
