Thats a good question....I was wondering the same for Michigan (lansing area). I will be nearing 5k soon.

One place I just checked was the mobil distributor directory (link follows). I have not had the time to call the distributors. So, I don't know if this will be helpful.

Exxon/Mobil Distributor directory

Let me know if this helps....

This was referenced in another thread...they carry Delvac 1
*************

Hall's Corner Mobil
7320 Gambrill Rd.
Springfield, VA 22153
703-569-2393 (ask for Bill)

It's right off the Fairfax County parkway at the Gambrill/Sydenstricker Rd. exit. If you are heading south, go to the second traffic light on the exit ramp and it's on the right. If you are heading North, turn left at the first light on the exit ramp to cross over to the other side (you'll be able to see it there).

I want to 1st thank every one for the replys.

I called Chesapeake Petroleum No answer BUT left a message.

I went to Hall's Corner Mobil [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] Can you say THIEF [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
They could not find a price for the 2 cases they have and dont even know why they have it. But they were going to cut me a DEAL at $26 a gallon + tax!

So I'm ordering my oil untill WALMART starts stocking it.

again Thanks

Save yourself $11 per case of four gallons, and order your Mobil Delvac 1 from Tri-Con Inc. in Beaumont Texas. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I'll bet the other firm doesn't put a mint in with their shipping invoice. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Call (409) 838-1925 or (800) 876-7102

Delvac-1 can be awfully hard to find. Look in the Yellow Pages under lubricant distributors. Also check out any truck stops in the area, which should have a few since you're close to a major North/South route.

UPDATE:

Well I went online with AVLUBE [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Well I filled out the Internet order form [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] 1st its not Secure 2nd when I hit the button after filling in the Credit Card info I get a 404 screen [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
Now Im not sure if my order was taken. My day is not going well.
So I Email them --- and I get the Email back with that "Returned mail: User unknown" --- I did send 4 and got 2 back.
So I figure whats another BUCK so I call them ... Well they dont work weekends.

If they return my call or my email with No they did not get my order --------- I will order from Tri-Con Inc.

I keep looking out side for LIGHTNING to strike my TDI today... I hope tomorrow is better. Oh I did order a Fumoto Engine Oil Drain Valve today so 1 thing went my way [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] . I ordered it from http://www.lubespecialist.com/
