Go to shells website and search for the nearest distributor. Call and see if they will sell you a case.

A local industrial lubricant supplier doesn't stock Shell 134, but will order it for me in case lots. One case is enough for an order. It is considerably cheaper buying that way vs any automotive suppliers that I've found.

Amazon - case of 12 - $120 --- since I am a Prime member, no additional shipping and since I am a $20 dollar bridge toll from any metro area, cost effective

Last time I bought a case of 12 at a shell distributor it was around $70.00.

I buy mine at my local NAPA (Canada) store... I think ATF134 was around Cad$8.50 per bottle for the last case I bought?
Like Zerex G05 coolant, it’s usually behind the counter, and often at the warehouse... but they stock it.

I opted for the Valvoline Max Life. Available at Walmart and is much cheaper. Meets all the necessary specs. Lubeguard additives are another good option. As I understand it, some of them will bring Dex III up to most 4+ specs. No idea how much truth there is to that, but their products are widely respected.

Unless anything changed, Valvoline MaxLife does not have the MB approval. However, I thought it was good enough and I used it without issue.
