Default Dielectric grease - Where can I find some?

To start with, my Baleno had some weird jerking problem under acceleration. I knew it had to be electrical or fuel related. I checked the pump, it was good, I changed the fuel filter, still didn't fix the problem.
So before getting to the coils, I wanted to check the connectors. They were all quite dusty, probably even rusty to an extent. I took them all out, cleaned 'em and applied some dielectric grease, which I had at home, and plugged them back - and there you go - the wasn't missing a beat!! This was after countless, futile trips to MSM & local mechanics.

Anyway, another friend of mine has the same problem with his Wagon R. Since I had run out of dielectric grease, I went out to GP road, and to my surprise, I couldn't find a single shop carrying it!!!

Any idea where I could get my hands on them? Willing to order online from trusted sources!

If you are unable to find it, can't you just use some petroleum jelly?

@aargee - It was Loctite, but I wasn't able to locate a dealer. Thanks for the the contact info.

@Raccoon - Vaseline might be able to do the job just as well, but I'm just a little worried that the it may get a bit runny in such high temp environments.

^^^Oops, you are right, it won't get just a bit runny, it might well get really runny. Btw, in case you do use it, try and avoid Vaselene. Its more prone to melting and is more expensive. Its fine for skin, but not for automotive use. Go for thicker, cheaper, small brand petroleum jelly.
