Looking for Rotella Synthetic

I could only find Rotella 100% Synthetic in a 0w40 (at Cdn. Tire), has anyone found it in other grades in Canada?

Look for a Shell Lubricants store. The usually have them near the oil depot (OK so I'm basing that on a sample of one, here in Ottawa).

Thanks for the feedback. I'll try the card lock / truck supply route.

Cheers

I ended up finding Rotella T 5w40 synthetic at Finning (Caterpillar tractor dealer in BC). it was $31 cdn jug. Strange part is the label states it to be distributed by Shell Canada Products Calgary, althought the Shell Canada lubricants website doesn't list it. It is in a blue jug. After conversion that's about double what our American friends are paying at Wal-Mart.
