This is cheaper, not sure about the postage though.

They are a good bunch to work with. The postage to Ireland was very reasonable. Buy with confidence! Shipping used to be a flat charge, so if still the case, get a season's worth.

If you should ever have etec trouble (as if!) then Rod Bower, their "consulting engineer" is the man to talk to

But surely you'd only know that if you'd had problems . Perhaps you ought to give GJ0KYZ his number ready for his next failure

I expect his advice would be to stop using the thing as a cultivator and stick to the blue/white bits on the plotter.

Mr Bower was kind enough to assist me following the demise of an EMM or two...

How much XD100 oil is one likely to use in a season for a 90 hp ETEC.

Say running for 50hrs

50 hours at crushing speeds would be about 1000 litres of fuel. Would use between 10 & 12 litres if XD100.

If you are talking 50 hours of idling about at low speeds with the odd 10 minute blat then you could easily halve those figures.

I have two cans if XD100 for sale if you want it. 1 unopened And 1 with a tiny amount used (100ml max)

You can them both for £50 plus postage.

I average about 50 hours a year. This year I've used about 12L in a pair of 115s. I'm set to XD100.
