Default Finding 40w oil in Dallas, TX area

I am in need of some 40w engine oil. I am in Frisco, TX, north side of Dallas, thru Saturday.

Does anyone who lives in this area know where I could pick up several gallons of 40w Detroit Diesel 2 stroke oil?

Thanks.

Melvin, Oreilly's in Frisco markets the Delo 100 two-stroke motor oil.

Good news! I will check when they open. Have never seen any suitable oil on the shelf up home. I even checked at a Detroit Diesel dealer. Partsman had not even heard that DD had their own oil for the 2 strokes!

I had 3 qts Leroy left in the bus. It was in a bay. Poured it in yesterday AM, at 15F. Looked like someone has filled the jug with almost clear molasses! That straight 40w hardly poured!

Melvin, I get all my straight 40 from O'Reillys. They always have to order it but it usually comes in the next day.

Ditto on O'Reilly's, but any Chevron jobber can supply it also.

The last time I was searching for Delo 100, O'Reilly's jacked the price way up on it so, be prepared. It went from like $12 a gallon to like $20.

if you need straight 40 weight, the price is a moot point

I had Oreillys order some. Got order in at 8:30, AM, and picked it up at 1 PM! Not bad.

Thanks for the help.
